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.Translate

Seller (Pending)Co-operative's name: Addis Ketema Location: Addis Ketema kebele, Wenago District, Gedeo Zone, SNNPR national region Members: 2614 smallholders Process: Fully washed. The cherries are hand-sorted and depulped in the late hours of the afternoon. The beans, covered in mucilage, are soaked in water tanks for around 48 hours, rinsed and dried on raised beds for up to 15 days. Addis Ketema is one of the less well-known co-operatives of the Yirgacheffee coffee-growing region. It is located in Wenago (or Wonago), one of the most densely populated woredas in Gedeo, with roughly 1.500 people per square kilometre. The area has been cultivated for over 100 years with farmers being passed from father to sons. As families grow the plots become increasingly smaller, adding pressure to the local economy and leading to migrations. Migrations like this are in the origin of new coffee-growing areas, such as Guji.
Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.
Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:
- Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
- EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.
Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.
