Gore Dako opened for its first harvest season this past fall, 2019. It’s location  is ideal: found in the southern end of Agaro Gera in the same forests that members  from Kolla Bolcha and Biftu Gudina farm their coffees, this area is also very close to  the border of Goma, home to Duromina and Hunda Oli. We’ve found the coffees have  an exceptionally fruited character along the lines of candied citrus and honey, and  although this is our first year working with Gore Dako (and their first year operating),  we anticipate many gorgeous harvest to come.  

Part of the Kata Muduga cooperatives, Gore Dako is part of the larger Agaro region  in Jimma, an area that has always formed a core part of the Red Fox menu with  relationships extending back even further, over a decade. In 2009 when we first met  the people behind the Nano Challa cooperatives, their coffees were flowing into the  marketplace undifferentiated and undervalued. Once USAID’s Technoserve project,  which focused on improving African coffee farmers’ lives by helping them get better  prices for their coffee, established the Nano Challa washing station, we saw the unique  character of their coffee and invested in developing relationships with its producers,  which have grown stronger to this day. More coops have sprung up over time, and they  each contribute a unique character and have their own name recognition and renown.  Gore Dako now joins their ranks.
