The Bunakoo initiative, powered by Afrovalley, will be hosting a virtual art exhibition and an auction for the Dancing Goats Collection, exploring the coffee ecoystem in Ethiopia, via the medium of NFTs.
Bunakoo is a term by the Oromo people, natives of Ethiopia, which means, My Coffee.
According to Afrovalley, coffee is known to have numerous economic, social, and spiritial impacts on many people from different geographical locations, cultures, and psychological backgrounds.
Whenever coffee is traded on the New York coffee exchange and the price is set on the world market, it disregards the intrinsic values and its impact on community socio-culture.
To put this into context, coffee is the most valuable legally traded commodity globally after oil. People pay premium dollar for quality coffee beans. However, farmers are not properly incentivized compared to the value gained and earned by the rest of the supply chain the global marketplace.
This collection seeks to highlight the coffee making process and the heritage and trade aspects of coffee.
