Established in 2010, DUROMINA is a word in the Afan Oromo language that describes a blessing to succeed or to become wealthy, and this is a smallholder cooperative who knows how to share the wealth. First focusing on quality improvements, which earned them a name, then on an organic certification for additional premiums, the cooperative is now focusing on community by building schools, roads, connections for electricity and safe drinking water. 

With technical support, business advice and access to finance through TechnoServe’s Coffee Initiative, the members acquired and installed a wet mill and began processing fully washed coffee for the first time. These improvements helped Duromina produce high-quality coffee and bring new prosperity to the community. Two years later, an international panel of professional judges would select Duromina’s coffee as the best in Africa, awarding the cooperative the top prize in the leading regional cupping competition. 

Duromina’s leaders believe that focusing on quality is the way to overcome this hurdle. Duromina only accepts the best coffee its farmers have to offer, and only accepts as much as the mills can handle perfectly.
