Yukro comes from the Agaro region of Western Ethiopia. The original Yukro Multipurpose Cooperative was established in 1977 the Yukro we love today didnt find its way into the market until just about ten years ago! USAID’s Technoserve project vested in this region and brought this beautiful coffee to the world after many years of incredibly meaningful work. This region was very well known for its sun dried naturals until recently. Yukro operates under the leadership of the Kata Muduga Cooperative Union which makes it possible for us to experience this beautiful coffee. After the fruit and honey is removed from the seed, they soak the coffee overnight in fiberglass tanks allowing any of the remaining sugars to be fully removed from their surface so the coffee is meticulously clean by the time they are trasnferred to the raised drying beds for the 8+ days they will need to be dried. Yukro manages the first 48 hours under shaded canopy to protect the soaking wet parchment from direct sunlight, preventing parchment from cracking and thereby protecting the beans once they are moved into the sun. Slow and steady and careful management is needed to produce proper drying and delicious coffee. A big thanks to Red Fox Coffee Merchants for bringing this beautiful coffee to us.
