Adado is a primary cooperative part of Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU). Unions such as YCFCU were created with government support to help primary co-operatives to market and sell coffee. As a service provider, is in their interest and part of their MO to represent each individual washing station. Coffees from a union won’t have a generic label. They will always be traceable up to the kebele level. In a market where coffees from different areas are sometimes blended to fulfil contracts based on price points, YCFCU only exports coffee from the Gedeo zone. And, as they don’t own the coffee, they can’t blend lots from different washing stations unless all parts agree and state the mix transparently on the lot name.

The process



All coffees are sorted by hand when brought in by farmers for weighing. The process usually starts at 5 pm and can continue until after dark. All naturals are sun-dried on raised beds and covered overnight and on the warmest hours of the day. The process can take up to 30 days until moisture levels average around 11%.

Quality comment
Algrano
Very sweet and dense coffee with lingering aftertaste and interesting and intense flavour profile, sparkling, with syrupy body and supportive acidity. Yummy;)

About the group Translate

Created in 2002, YCFCU 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. It is part of our culture to preserve our environment. To do so we combine our traditional ways with specialized agronomist advice. YCFCU works as a marketing body for the primary co-ops facilitating loans for cherry collection and redistributing profit to its members. The union also invests in the community building a school in Dila and bridges to link isolated areas. All the co-operatives are located in the Gedeo Zone, in the southern part of Ethiopia. This region is famous for coffee growing in the country, with 62,000 hectares of gardens that are dedicated to coffee alone. On average, Gedeo produces 15,500 tons of Yirgacheffe grade each year.
