The Story

Heleanna Georgalis is at the forefront of exporting Ethiopia’s nest coffees. She runs Moplaco, a coffee exporter, grader, and dry mill started by her father in 1972. Ethiopia’s coffee supply chain is complicated. Currently, 98% of the coffee exported from Ethiopia passes through the Ethiopian Coffee Exchange (ECX), a commodities market and auction system in Addis Ababa. Except for the coffees from their own farm, Moplaco purchases all the lots they export through the ECX, then hand sorts the freshly hulled coffee, ensuring only the best seeds make it to export. Here is one example of their fine work.
