Background Details

Ethiopia Sidamo 4 Organic Natural Oromia Grainpro is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Oromia Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (OCFCU), an umbrella organization established in 1999 to support a sustainable coffee supply from cooperatives in the Oromia region of Ethiopia. OCFCU supports 360 cooperatives with more than 332,393 farmer members, accounting for sixty-five percent of Ethiopia's total coffee production. Premiums from coffee exports are returned directly to farmers, and also fund organic farming programs, mill equipment purchases, and food security programs. OCFCU has established a central cupping lab to support quality control and a members' bank that provides pre-harvest financing.
