This Yirgacheffe coffee comes from the Adado Cooperative washing station in the southern Ethiopian highlands within the Gedeo Zone, south of the capital Addis Ababa.
The Gedeo Zone is the main production area for the world famous Yirgacheffe and Sidamo coffees. The Adado Coop is part of the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU) and comprised of approximately 1100 farmers growing heirloom varieties on very small plots of land.
Located in the lushly vegetated mountains, members’ coffee farms reside at altitudes between 2000 to 2400 meters above sea level. In this area, the soil is fertile with infrequent erosion due to traditional Gedeo agriculture practices combining coffee and enset, both semi-permanent species, as the predominant crops. This coffee possesses all the characteristics that are so representational of sundried Yirgacheffee coffee, full of berry sweetness with only mild acidity.
