Another fantastic fresh crop washed Yirgacheffe, with this 'Banko' we are tasting lots of bergamot, lemonade, lime juice, florals, and sweet spice!
This coffee is sourced from 177 smallholder farm members of the Banko Dhadhato Cooperative that belong to the larger Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union. Since 1975 the YCFCU (currently with 1,247 members) has helped farmers get fair prices for their crop as well as make joint decisions about investments needed for equipment and production. Professional managers appointed by the YCFCU that help oversee harvest and production are held accountable to cooperative members and executive committee.
