The Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU) was established in June 2002 and represents 43,794 farmers who are members of 26 coops in the Gedeo region of Southern Ethiopia. The coops produce Organic and Fair Trade certified coffee and are spread over 6 districts: Yirgacheffe, Gedeb, Wonango, Dilla Zuria, Bule, and Kochere. The coffee-producing land area exceeds 62,000 hectares and YCFCU produces both washed and sundried (natural) Yirgacheffe coffee. Using the social premiums from their Fair Trade certified coffees, the YCFCU coops have been able to accomplish many projects including building schools, installing electricity to benefit the residents of these remote coffee farming areas, and the construction and improvement of roads and bridges.
