Michael Mamo, Managing Director of Addis Exporter
“There are more investments in farming and more coffee exporters are actually getting into the coffee trade in Ethiopia. However 2014 is going to be a very challenging year because the international market price has dropped dramatically and our local market situation remains difficult. The local market price is often higher than the international and for farmers, if they don’t make money, they aren’t going to produce coffee,” explains Mr Mamo.
