Yirgacheffe is a small micro-region within Greater Sidama. Due to distinct flavor profiles, farming regions have been grouped separately and includes(to name a few) Wenago, Kochere and Galana Abaya sub-regions. Very distinct characteristics of dried fruits, florals, bright acidity, and at times layered with undertones of spice.

The Ethiopian Coffee Exchange(ECX) was created in 2008 as a platform to reduce price volatility for coffee producers and sellers alike. The exchange was thought to be a more modern, centralized trading system. Over the years, it has tried to improve transparency and advance the producers ability to distinguish their coffee from others. But the system has been met with challenges and producer(exporter) pushback. In 2017, it was announced that the Ethiopian Coffee Authorities would modify the current system allowing for exporters with valid export licenses to directly sell their coffee to international buyers. This roadmap will make it easier to source green coffee directly from farmers, societies(unions) and exporters throughout Ethiopia allowing for us to build stronger relationships which offering a product that is more traceable.
