Also known as Irgachefe and sometimes spelled Yergacheffe, the town of Yirga Cheffe is located in the Sidamo area of Ethiopia which is located about 6,230 feet above sea level. The town is considered to be the administrative center of this huge coffee farming district, and is also said by some to be the place where coffee first originated.Yirgacheffe coffee is wet processed, and is considered one of the premium, cleanest-cupping Ethiopian coffees. Beans are hand-picked to ensure full ripeness, a huge benefit when cherries are fermented and washed of their pulp. The smallholders belong to the Oromia Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union, established in 1999 to facilitate the direct export of coffee produced by small farmers. The Union also ensures that Fairtrade premiums are directed towards community development; since 1999 they have overseen the construction of 11 primary schools, 3 secondary schools, a library and kindergarten, as well as further medical, office and agroindustrial infrastructure.Yirgacheffe is certified organic, and soils are naturally fertilized with pulp waste left over after the coffee cherries are processed. Coffee is grown at some of the highest altitudes seen in the context of Ethiopian coffee cultivation. Wet processing only after the beans are fully ripe lends a bright, clean acidity to the brew.
