ABOUT

Seven Seeds has been sourcing coffee from the woredas (districts) around Jimma for the past four years, and we’re proud again to bring you this coffee from the Yachi Kachise Cooperative, where we met again with them in January this year. Indicative of these woredas, their coffee have complex fruit flavour profile & clean citric acidity. As of 2016, Yachi Kachise is represented through the regional union Kata Maduga.

PARTNERS Kata Maduga Union, Sourcing Partner

In Jimma, local cooperatives are made up of small-holder farmers who take their coffee cherry to a Coop washing station, after which the elected union facilitates the sale of parchment & milling before export. We’ve listed the FOB (Freight on Board) price that we paid to Kata Maduga, and within that, the Farmgate price - what the Coop directly earned for the coffee in parchment. On top of FOB, we pay to ship the coffee to Melbourne, quality assess, roast (resulting in a 15% weight loss), & retail it, adding significant costs & risk.

Compare the different trading models to see what the cooperative would have received if he hadn’t sold to Seven Seeds.
