This week we had a lovely drop-in visit and interview with Tebabu Assefa, one of the most active and consistent advocates for cross-cultural understanding and economic independence in the DC area. Tebabu and his wife Sara are co-founders of Blessed Coffee, a company that links sustainable growers in Ethiopia with consumers in the US and abroad in a mutually beneficial trade arrangement. With the success of their coffee model, Sara and Tebabu plan to scale to other products from the continent.
