Forward perfumed coffee suggesting a touch of lily reaching out of the cup with a slew of aromatic flavor notes cradled with great sweetness and rounded body, sweetly disappearing. As we get to explore this coffee during this first year we will update our preliminary description.
Yukro members harvest coffee from the forest and from plantings.
TechnoServe, an NGO, is working directly with the Yukro Cooperative and other cooperatives in the region as a coordinator between agronomists and managers, as well as a business adviser to help the cooperatives manage their debts, re-invest in quality improvements at the mills, and verify distribution of income to all members. The achievements of the Ethiopian farmer communities with the assistance of TechnoServe seem monumental to me. From producers of run-of-mill commercial coffee of little worth they have catapulted to being the highest quality producers in Ethiopia, in my opinion
