Jimma, Ethiopia

Three years ago, a couple hundred farmers in the Western Zone of Jimma came together to form the Yukro Multipurpose Farmer's Cooperative, specializing in coffee and honey production, in an area mostly surrounded by evergreen jungle forest. The impetus was simple. TechnoServe, a non-profit with an agricultural focus, was helping to finance a wet mill. The results, however, were revolutionary, giving the farmers an opportunity to sell their coffee directly to the quality-focused buyers able to pay premiums for cleanly-processed, sweet coffee. Perhaps more profoundly, it was the first opportunity for the world to experience coffee from an area that had been previously ignored. You can look forward to a breathtaking aroma full of raw honey to set the stage for a creamy coffee full of peach and strawberry. This is a big coffee with no edges whatsoever.
