Yukro spotlights underlying floral layered on raspberry sweetness due to the washed process. It is a processing method in Ethiopia that produces the hallmark citric acidities and florals we expect from the birthplace of coffee.

This process requires nearly 6 liters of water to process 1 kilogram of coffee. The coffee moves through a disc-pulper, fermentation tank, and then on to a series of washing channels until it's officially labeled "clean." In a water-scarce climate, this resource-intensive process has resulted in many Western Ethiopian mills to rely on the dry process heavily. With assistance from Washington DC-based NPO, TechnoServe, the Yukro Cooperative can now use an eco-friendly pulper called the Penagos. This Colombian de-mucilage technology can wash the same 1 kilogram of coffee with only 1 liter of water. The Yukro Cooperative is now able to save more water while showcasing the beautiful harvest from the Gera Woreda coffee farmers.
We believe the coffee experience is our responsibility from seed to cup. Coffee is our craft, our ritual, our passion. It drives us and inspires us. With this simple truth and responsibility we are bridging the gap from farmlevel to streetlevel.
