Ethiopia is considered as the cradle of coffee and famous for the fact that it was in the

forest in the Kaffa region where Coffee Arabica grew wild. Today, the country shows a

typical “smallholder” structure. This means that a high number of farmers with a usually

small production yield and an average land plot of 1 hectare carry together their cherries

and bring them to central washing stations. Following this typical structure of the

country, the Sidamo Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union, founded in 2003, unites 39 Fair

trade organizations with a total of approximately 69,000 members spread throughout the

mountains and valleys of the Sidamo region in southern Ethiopia. The SCFCU provides

professional training to all managers and coffee pulping machine operators to develop

their skills in processing high quality coffee. Moreover SCFCU provides scholarships to

hundreds of the members’ children and has funded three new school buildings for local

primary schools. Base organizations used the Fairtrade Premium to improve the

infrastructure in their communities, construct cooperative offices and warehouses, install

electricity at processing facilities and fund electricity lines reaching more than 5,000

community members.
