ABOUT

Established in 1977, this cooperative situated in the Goma district of Agaro City, has been a stalwart in the region. Originally the cooperative produced natural & honey processed coffee. NGO Technoserve gave financial & technical aid to Yukro to develop quality by giving them the means to produce high grade, fully washed process coffee. The result is a fruit driven and effervescent cup.

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.
