Sidama Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (SCFCU) was founded in 2001 to represent coffee producing cooperatives located throughout the Sidama Zone of southern Ethiopia. Originally, the Union consisted of 47 cooperatives societies which represented over 70,000 farmers.
Today, SCFCU has grown to represent 47 primary cooperative societies and over 70,000 farmers (small holders) making SCFCU the second largest coffee producing cooperative union in Ethiopia. Nearly all coffee produced by our member cooperatives is shade grown in low densities under the canopies of indigenous trees and enset (false banana), a staple food crop. Sidama Union produces approximately about 10,000 tons of high quality Organic Arabica beans per year, 95% of which is washed.
This lot comes from the Homacho Waeno washing station in the Aleta Wondo district of Sidama. Coffees in this area are grown at 1900-2100 masl.
