In 2006, brothers Asefa and Mulugeta Dukamo founded Daye Bensa, a coffee grower and exporter in Ethiopia.

  • Daye Bensa exports coffee from its farm, in the Shantawene Village, as well as from “out-growers” (or smallholders) in three villages: Shantawene, Karamoand Bombe.
  • Ethiopia Shantawene is a village situated in the Bensa District on the edge of the Harenna Forest on the western slope of Mount Batu.




  • Daye Bensa coffee farms sit between 1,900 and 2,217 meters. The coffee cherries come from out-growers farms higher up the mountain, between 2,000 and 2,400 meters. They deliver the coffee to the closest of the 15 small washing stations owned by Daye Bensa, spread across three districts.
  • Its two farms, in Kaffa and Sidamo, are Organic, UTZ, Rainforest Alliance and C.A.F.E. practices certified.
  • Each year they host an “Out-Growers” Day. Nearly 1,000 farmers gather to celebrate their harvests and to receive second payments for their coffee cherry contributions. Daye Bensa additionally rewards the top three farmers from each of the three villages with certificates and premiums, recognizing them for consistently delivering high-quality cherries.
  • Going forward, Daye Benesa is hoping to work with more farmers, to particularly encourage women farmers and to work with Hawassa University, to help students perform research to improve coffee quality.
