This week, we're talking coffee with Orit Mohammed, founder of Boon Coffee. Orit hails from Ethiopia and decided to reconnect with the coffee culture she grew up with by supporting coffee farmers through her company. She's recently also added a B2C component to her business by opening two cafes in Dubai. Orit also walks us through the challenges of running a female led business and the stereotypes she had to confront being an Ethiopian female entrepreneur. You can sample Boon's coffee beans from their website, or order them from The Lighthouse as well. If you enjoyed this episode, we'd love to hear from you.
