The Oromia Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union is a network of primary cooperatives whose small farmer members are indigenous to the Oromia state of South and South-Western Ethiopia. Founded in 1999 by 35 small, organically certified cooperatives it since has expanded to embrace a host of cooperatives with similar goals. Coffee cultivation takes place on smallholder plots in these mountainous, 1500 - 2000 metres above sea level, remote highlands where traditional, organic farming is part of the culture. The coffee is primarily shade grown in both forested areas and in small-holdings and produced under organic conditions using natural composting
