With a 40 year track record, Ambassa has established itself as one of Ethiopia's top coffee exporters
Ambassa Enterprises Established.
In 1974, Ambassa Enterprises was set up by Geoffrey Wetherel in Addis Ababa. Geoffrey focused on large scale coffee exports and established Ambassa as one of Ethiopia’s early large scale trading houses.
Thriving Through the Decades
By the late 1980s, Ambassa had become one of Ethiopia's top coffee exporters by quantity. It focused its efforts on the Japanese market but managed to create strong relationships with buyers from around the world.
In 1996, Ambassa Enterprises formally received two awards from the Ministry of Trade and the Coffee and Tea Authority of Ethiopia recognizing its outstanding performance and the quality of its exports.
In 2018, the Bagersh family assumed ownership of Ambassa Enterprises, and the company entered a new phase of its growth. Today, Ambassa continues to strive to provide buyers with a range of services, including the sourcing of green beans, coffee processing and logistics handling.
The New Vision
Ambassa now operates actively in international exports, processing, logistics and sources coffee from both specialty producers as well as wholesale commercial traders.
