Sourced from among the 300 members of the Worka Cooperative, Worka owes its distinct complexity and clarity to not only meticulous processing featuring a Gaviota demucilager and channel-washing system; but the staggering altitudes and mystical terroir surrounding the Worka Kebele in Gedeb. It's needless to say, we're pretty head-over-heels for coffees hailing from this small but mighty community.
Upon it's 2005 inception, Worka joined the twenty-six other member cooperatives affiliated with the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU). Benefitting over 45,000 member smallholder farmers, The YCFCU is committed to supporting a sustainable coffee supply from cooperatives in the Gedeo ethnic region of Ethiopia.
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. We are verve. Made in santa cruz.
