long-term, deep relationships with our farmer partners

As the original home of coffee and still one of the top coffee-producing countries in the world, Ethiopia today is synonymous with famous coffee names such as Yirgacheffe, Harar, and Sidamo. We worked together with the farmers and the Ethiopian government to create a workable, fair trademark license to protect these famous coffee names from abuse and infringement from large coffee companies (you know who they are). Dean's legal training was also employed to fight to insure that the farmers were represented and respected in the licensing process.
