About the Farmer

To produce this coffee, farmers hand-sort for unripe and overripe cherries. Coffee is pulped and wet fermented for 24 to 36 hours. After sorting based on density, the fermented coffee is washed in clean water before being dried for one to two weeks on cloth drying beds. Workers cover the coffee with plastic at midday and at night.

The cooperatives Beloya, Harfusa, and Koke are in a network of cooperatives in the Yirgacheffe region belonging to the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU). Its smallholder members distinguish themselves with their impeccable attention to detail in processing. Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union is a Union of 28 primary co-operatives split into 43 washing stations with over 38,000 farmers supporting over 300,000 family members. These are all part of the Gedeo people, who produce some of the most prized Ethiopian coffees with natural techniques. The majority of coffees grown in Yirgacheffe are local landrace varieties, know as Ethiopian heirloom.
