For over a decade, Mate Matosa has been cultivating coffee near the seifer (village) of Doko, Bensa, in the Sidama region of Ethiopia. Mate is an entrepreneur and is always in the forefront for adopting improved farm practices in the area. Not only does he do an excellent job of preparing his land for growing coffee, but he’s also intentional in selecting and planting improved coffee cultivars released by local coffee research stations, with a goal of enhancing coffee flavor, yield, and disease resistance. Currently

his farm includes varieties #74158 and #74112 as well as curated indigenous heirloom landraces (wild varieties that have adapted to the specific geographic area).

Mate and his wife, Mrs. Tsehaynesh Girma, have ten children, three whom are adopted. Of these, four are directly involved in all parts of their family’s coffee production. As a single farm lot producer, once harvest time arrives, Mate has more work than he and his family can handle on their own. So he hires seasonal and daily laborers to help hand-pick the ripe red cherries. This process is very labor intensive, and pickers often must return to the same tree multiple times over the harvest season as coffee doesn’t ripen all at once. The carefully harvested cherries are then loaded into bags or baskets and taken to the drying beds where they are spread out in thin layers to dry under the intense and golden Ethiopian sun.

Five hectares of Mate Matosa’s 6-hectare farm are currently planted to coffee. With each passing year, he works hard to expand his coffee farm business in ways that can help him potentially produce award-winning coffee, and is always looking to bring innovation and improvement to his operation. He works closely with individuals, companies, and coffee buyers who know Ethiopian coffee, seeking sustainable growth for his farm, family and community.
