Dear editors

I first came in contact with your wonderful journal gate with the 2/1995 issue. In this issue you published an article entitled "Reducing risks for small coffee farmers." This article is very interesting, it gives us valuable information.

It is known that the coffee tree is native to Ethiopia from here it spread throughout the world. Ethiopia's arabica coffee is known all over the world for its surpassed flavour; my country's chief source of foreign exchange comes from coffee. Experts did the best they could about coffee production. From growing the coffee tree to exporting picked and packed coffee beans.

My library readers said that they enjoyed reading the gate journal and they appreciate its information on appropriate technology.
