Cerealiacoffe – Coffee from its Origin.
Cerealia Coffee’s parent company,
ROMEL General Trading PLC started exporting green coffee beans in 2018. Since then, Cerealia Coffee has grown to be prominent in the coffee export sector. The company operates on its five washing stations, and dry mill. Two washing stations in “Bensa” and “Arroresa” areas of Sidama and the other two in “Gedeb, Sisole and Bareda” areas of Yirgacheffee. The last one located in “Gore” area of Illubabore. At these washing stations, we process specialty coffees fetching “Q” standard coffees that are traceable up to the farm. We are proud to play our role in bringing Ethiopian coffee to the global market with our skilled staff handling all transactions until the final buyers’ clean document presentation.
Our passion for coffee started when we opened our first pastry and coffee shop called Bethlehem Pastry around Megenagna in 2003 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Our coffee shop was adored by many for our freshly brewed coffee which was traditionally hand-roasted. We commonly roasted three to four times a day to provide our customers the experience of freshly roasted coffee and its distinct aroma. The success and popularity of our coffee shop still carries on today with a new branding, Karavan coffee. It is has multiple branches across Addis Ababa under new management. In 2011, we started Cerealia Coffee by expanding our business portfolio to green coffee export preceded by our parent company ROMEL General Trading PLC acquiring Kaliti Food S.C (KFSC) through privatization from the government. At that time, KFSC was one of the first Ethiopian Commodity Exchange Market (ECX) members. ECX modernized coffee and other commodity trades in Ethiopia.
