When first approached by World Vision to partner with them on this project we liked the idea.
What a pleasure to be able to partner with World Vision in Ethiopia. Together, we have manifested real support for these producers and their families. With our project, we have contributed support to rebuild their coffee community which in turn has enabled Jasper Coffee to present to Australia, from the birthplace of coffee, one of the most beautiful coffees we have tasted.
Since 2007, Jasper Coffee has contributed more than $92,000 to this project. The success of this partnership is seen in the strength and focus of the remote community to work together to change their lives, and deliver their brilliant coffee to the international market.

When first approached by World Vision to partner with them on this project we liked the idea. Once we had tasted Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Hama, we LOVED it! What a pleasure to be able to support World Vision in their work in Ethiopia, and support these farmers by enjoying one of the most beautiful coffees we have ever come across.
A percentage of our profits from sales of this coffee has been returned directly back into the area development project with HAMA Coop, at Kochore in Yirgacheffe.
Our Yirgacheffe is an elegant well structured, all consuming coffee experience. It starts with immediate sweet stone fruit, nectarine or apricot, then gains austerity in the mid palate with toasted almonds and soft milk chocolate to smooth the way for sip after sip. As a long black…memorable, and the amazing flavours just last longer.
Brewed as a filter this coffee is sweet and delicate and enhances the very high altitude character with clean finesse and assurance you are drinking an ancient bean.
Since the beginning of World Vision’s Area Development Program, and since selling their coffee as Fairtade and Organic on the International Market, the Yirgacheffe Hama Coop has:
Wells met with the Kochore Spiritual Leader, in Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia when he visited the HAMA Cooperative in 2014.
He was there to present our Agronomy Report, translated into Amharic for the farmers of the Cooperative and to extend our support for their endeavour to elevate themselves out of poverty.
This is building our relationship with trust and longevity.
