Coffee Background

This coffee is sourced from family owned farms organized around the Hafursa Cooperative located within the coffee region of Yirgacheffe in the Gedeo Zone, Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region, Ethiopia. The Hafursa Cooperative was established in 1975 and currently has approximately 955 members who produce their coffee on plots of less than 1.5 hectares that are shaded, and intercropped with banana and other nitrogen fixing crops. In 2002, the cooperative joined the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU), an umbrella organization established in 2002 to support a sustainable coffee supply from cooperatives in the Gedeo ethnic region of Ethiopia. There are twenty-six other cooperatives affiliated with the YCFCU totaling more than 45,000 members.
