The Harrar region lies in the Eastern Highlands of Ethiopia. As one of the main growing regions in the original coffee country, Harrar has a reputation for producing distinctive wild-varietal Arabica as it has for centuries: dry-processed, sun-dried, and hand sorted by thousands of knowledgeable workers.
Our coffee comes from Oromia Coffee Farmers’ Cooperative Union (OCFCU), a small farmer owned cooperative union which has members from all coffee growing areas in Oromia regional state. Established in 1999 to facilitate the direct export of coffee produced by small farmers cooperatives, OCFCU works exclusively in Oromia Regional State, which accounts for 65% of the country’s total coffee growing land. Oromia, along with their General Manager, Tadesse Meskela have been internationally recognised for their implementation of farmer support programs.
OCFCU has an excellent reputation for supporting its members and their communities. The Union pays 70% of its net profit back to the cooperatives, who in turn pay 70% of their profit to the member farmers. Farmers benefit by being paid 3 times in one season, allowing for greater stability.
