Located in Gedeo, Southern Ethiopia, the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU) is made up of more than 300,000 families whose founding mission is to support the continuing development of sustainable coffee in their region. The members of this cooperative have been diligently working towards becoming the best quality organic coffee producer, processor and exporter in Ethiopia. About 60% of the country’s foreign exchange earnings comes from coffee. In fact, more than 15 million people are dependent on coffee production for their livelihood and daily survival. The YCFCU was founded in 2002, and in that short time it has provided 500 school desks for children in the community, installed electricity in the area and built a bridge that has allowed members easy access to markets. YCFCU’s dedication to social programs and strict quality control checks has made this Ethiopian coffee stand out among the rest.
