Ethiopian Organic Fair Trade Whole Bean Coffee (Oromia Blend)
This blend comes from the Oromia Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union, made up of 34 member coops spread throughout the central plateau of Yirgacheffe, Sidamo and Jimma. Roaster Dean Cycon worked with Oromia to introduce the first ever Fair Trade, Organic Ethiopian into the U.S. When he brought back roasted 'Oromia Blend' to the farmers, they were delighted. Few had ever tasted their own coffee and none had ever seen it packaged with their name on it. The profits from this fair-trade blend goes into a revolving loan fund that each community can use to build desperately needed water wells in the villages.
