Level Ground Trading purchase coffee from the Fero Co-op of the Sidama Coffee Farmers’ Union. The co-op has approximately 3000 member farmers. The co-op has 3 washing stations several km apart, and 11 buying posts for purchase of cherries. All of the cherries are processed at the three co-op washing stations. Processed coffee is sent via truck to Addis for milling and grading, and then is sent to the port of Djibouti, which is a 600 km drive from Addis.
Coffee is the primary source of income for the people in Yrgalem. Fero Co-op farmers receive great prices for their coffee because it is considered among the best in the world.
