Where do these beans come from? Ethiopia, of course, where coffee was first discovered. The Sidama Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union, founded in 2001, represents 51 cooperatives and more than 76,000 small-scale farmer families.
Coffees produced by member cooperatives are shade grown under the canopies of indigenous trees and enset (banana-like fruit), a staple food crop for Sidama families. The Sidama region stretches across south central portion of the country from the mountains of Bensa to the valleys of Dale and Aleta Wendo.
Cooperative Coffees began sourcing directly from this large cooperative in 2009. Overall our farmer partners produce 20,000 pounds of high quality organic arabica beans per year, of which nearly 95% is washed.
