The Layo Taraga Cooperative is situated in the Uraga district of Oromia in the Guji region - one of Ethiopia's foremost areas of coffee production. The Cooperative has about 500 members, who farm shade-grown garden coffees on plots approximately one hectare in size. Elevations in this region top out at around 2200m, making it one of the highest coffee growing regions in the country.

During harvest season, farmers deliver their freshly-picked cherries to the washing station where under and over-ripe cherries are removed before the ripe fruits are de-pulped. The cherries are then fermented underwater for between 8-12 hours, where the remaining flesh is broken down by bacteria, promoting the refined, floral flavours you can appreciate in the cup.
