Our activity in Ethiopia started with a desire to do something for the immediate needs of people suffering from drought. While we have realized “Cosmic Manifesto” concert in Addis Ababa with great success and then started to develop a water supply project with Japanese specialist and implementing actual facilities, however, one day we were told to think about starting a business that would contribute to Ethiopian farmers as a means to drastically tackle the roots of problems, while the real cause of disaster is the terrible system made by man; namely the poverty that has made profit from the lives of human beings.
Ethiopia is the original source of coffee. We felt it our assignment to introduce its marvelous taste to Japan, so we started importing directly from Ethiopia the best beans especially selected for NPO KOMA. We also developed a special method to filter the energy of Idaki Shin’ s music during the roasting procedure of the beans with a customized sound system. This we believe to give an exquisite taste and makes very healthy coffee, in accordance with the original use of coffee as a medicinal beverage. This is the birth of our Andromeda Ethiopia coffee, made out of the stunning beauty of Ethiopian nature, its great history and pride as the original source of coffee and what we call the energy of light of Idaki Shin’ s sound.
Andromeda is the name of a queen of the ancient kingdom of Ethiopia. No day passes without thinking about the children I met in Gode on my first inspection of its drought. Their eyes were so pure and their full smiling faces remained in my mind, but nobody was there when I visited Gode a second time. Life may go away but they are still together. Thus diffusing our coffee is what we can do to tackle poverty and drought. Feeling that Andromeda symbolizes the wishes of numerous lives, past and present. Andromeda Ethiopia aspires to be the No1 coffee available in Japan, with its original taste of coffee.
