Masha Natural Organic and Rainforest Alliance–certified coffee comes from Masha Woreda Yeppo Village, a coffee farm owned by world-renown running champion Haile Gebrselassie. The land was a gift from the Ethiopian government, in thanks for his achievements representing Ethiopia. Among his accomplishments, Haile is a two-time Olympic champion, a four-time World Champion and the holder of 27 world records, for distances from 1,500 meters to the marathon.
For a time, Haile was president of the Ethiopian Athletics Federation, and he founded the Great Ethiopian Run—a 10-kilometer race around Addis Ababa. He also organizes the Girls Run race in Addis each year, encouraging and empowering young women through sports.
Cup Profile: Mango, dried fruits and sweet caramel makes this a well rounded coffee, sweet, rich and low acidity.
