Ethiopia Sidamo OROMIA Organic Fair Trade

New Arrival from Ethiopia

December 6, 2017

Established in 1999, Oromia Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union has quickly become the largest Fair Trade coffee producer in Ethiopia. The OCFCU was formed when 23,691 members of 35 small cooperatives cam together with the goal of exporting their coffee directly to the specialty market. All six of their Oromia Highland Coffee varieties (Yirgacheffe, Sidamo, Limu, Lekemptl, Jima & Harrar) are grown by indigenous farmers in the southwestern rain forests of Ethiopia. Oromia's coffee is heirloom, forest-grown, & organic. In 2005, the cooperative was awarded first place for their unwashed coffee in the East African Fine Coffee Association cupping competition. Of the top ten qualifiers in the competition, three were Oromia members. Focusing on 100% Organic production, Oromia produces approximately 70 containers annually and has over 7,000 members who are FairTrade certified. Given proud history of Ethiopian coffee, and the unique flavors and aromas of this cup, this ORganic Ethiopian is sure to please even the most critical palate.
