Birhanu Wote

This coffee is produced by Birhanu Wote and processed as a separate lot at the Worka Cooperative where Birhanu Wote is a member. The cooperative was established in 2005 and has approximately 310 members.  In 2005, the cooperative joined the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU), an umbrella organization established 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.

Yirgacheffe

This coffee comes from our washing-station partners at Beriti, in the village of Tore, in the Yirgacheffe region. There are about 600 producers in the region who are served by Beriti Washing Station, many of whom own less than 1 hectare of farmland on which they typically grow other crops like bananas and corn. Natural and Washed coffees are both dried on raised beds: It takes about 9–12 days for the Washed lots, and between 8–20 days for the Naturals depending on sun access and temperature.

In March of 2017, the prime minister of Ethiopia approved a reform allowing co-operatively owned washing stations to export their coffee directly.  Greater traceability allows us to buy more directly from the same washing stations, year in and year out. This also opens the potential for partnerships on a more personal level, with individual farmers or smaller groups within a community.
