Ethiopia is universally recognized as the birthplace of coffee, and produces some of the most complex and exciting coffees in the world.  This coffee comes from the Yirgacheffe Region, which is one of the three primary coffee growing regions in Ethiopia. The DAMA Cooperative is from the Dilla district, not far from Yirgacheffe town, in the Gedeo Zone of Ethiopia. The cooperative is a member of the umbrella Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers’ Cooperative Union (YCFCU), and has a robust membership of over 1900 individuals. Coffee coming from Dama is both Certified Organic and Fair Trade.

Gedeo receives its name from the ethnic majority in the region, and shares a border to the north with the much larger Sidama zone. Within Gedeo, Yirgacheffe is recognized for its high degree of importance to Ethiopia’s coffee production. It’s especially notable that the town of Yirgacheffe was an early adopter of the fully washed method of processing coffee, where the coffee seed is mechanically depulped and then dried on raised beds.
