The Sidama Coffee Farmers’ Cooperative Union is a tribally based organisation marketing the coffee produced by Sidama farmers in the south of Ethiopia. It is an umbrella organisation uniting 53 primary societies, including Shanta Golba, which are currently investing their fair trade social premiums in the construction of schools, roading and transportation, electricity infrastructure, flour mills, and warehouses. The Union itself is focused on improving coffee production infrastructure and support. Shanta Golba produces both washed and natural coffees in a very similar manner to the other primary groups in the union. Read more about Sidama here.
Natural coffee like this is produced late in the harvest and the ripe fruit has been dried in the cherry on raised beds, enhancing its essential sweetness and fruit flavours.
