A wonderful Yirgacheffe! This coffee by the Adado cooperative, processed as a «natural», is grown in Daro Kebele, on the border to Adado Kebele and next to Aboole river in the Bule District. It won our hearts with its amazing fruity aromas and a sweetness that reminds us of brown sugar. A hint of cocoa and spices in the nose makes it a beautifully balanced, yet nuanced cup.
The cooperative occupies around 185 workers during harvest season and is part of the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU). The YCFCU acts as a trader for its member cooperatives and takes care of sales and marketing. It further invests in the community through building a school and bridges to link isolated areas and organizes workshops and meetings for its members. All cooperatives that are part of the YCFCU are located in the Gedeo Zone in southern Ethiopia.
These coffees of the native varieties Kudhume, Welisho and Dego are certified with the Fairtrade and organic labels. They are sorted by hand, sun-dried and covered overnight as well as during the hottest hours of the day to protect it. The drying process can take up to 30 days. With the YCFCU's own trucks, the coffee is brought to Addis Ababa, goes through various quality checks before it's exported and reaches Europe by way of Djibouti.
