Under Meskel, I am also doing some consultancy work. I support European companies to get the right information before investing, buying or producing in Ethiopia.
Meleya: Ethio-Dutch coffee brand. This brand lasted 4 years, lack of good experience and also due to European crisis I had to stop.
Moyee Coffee: founding partner, investor and also strategic advisor. Dutch coffee brand which offers a fair chain product.
The coffee is on The Netherlands Market, Ethiopian Market, Irish Market.

From all coffee initiatives in which I am involved I have learned that tractability is key!!
I am working on a plan of coffee cleaning plant. This plant will be based in KAFFA region, the birth place of coffee. 40 % of the Ethiopian coffee comes from that region and from the south.
All these coffee will pass through JIMMA, the city where we want to set our cleaning station.
My big assets are my business partners and my large network in TheNetherlands, France and Ethiopia.
