The Yirgacheffe region is located in southern Ethiopia, in the middle of the country. Some of the best and most exclusive coffees come from there. It is divided into six "woredas" or districts.

The coffee farmers are all smallholders and own land between 0.5 and 2 hectares. They deliver their coffee cherries to cooperatives, which then process them.
Worka is a small area in Gedeb district, located at 2000-2200mt above sea level. The Worka cooperative consists of around 410 small producers, most of whom grow their coffee on the slopes of Mount Rudu. The coffee trees grow in the shade of various fruit trees and are fed with specially made fertilizer, which benefits the local ecosystem and keeps the land healthy and balanced.

For the washed process, the cherries are washed the same day they are picked and then dried for about 7 days depending on altitude and weather .

This coffee is full-bodied and sweet with a good body and, in addition to chocolate and cocoa, it shows notes of stone fruits, especially plums and peach.
