Moplaco was founded in 1971 by Heleanna’s father Yannis Georgalis, third-generation coffee professional. Yiannis became a legendary player in Ethiopian coffee. After he passed away, his daughter Heleanna, took over the family land and continuing to grow and improve both the family business and Ethiopian coffee as a whole. She produces some of the brightest, most complex coffees we’ve ever tasted, and we’re excited to be able to share them with you.
The Sidamo region of Southern Ethiopia holds the distinction as one of the three trademarked coffee regions of Ethiopia. Alongside Harrar and Yirgacheffe, Sidamo holds a Designation of Origin for coffee grown in the region. That’s unsurprising when you consider the high altitudes of 1,550 to 2,200 meters above sea level, plentiful rainfall and fertile soil that makes the coffee grown in this region so remarkable. The Sidamo region is named after the indigenous ethnic group, the Sidama, who call the region their home. The Great Rift Valley spans from the northernmost tip of Ethiopia across Kenya and all the way to the southernmost region of Tanzania. It is home to some of the oldest-known fossils of humankind, which suggests its importance in the early development of humanity.
