Yirgacheffe is found within the state of the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region (SNNPR) of Ethiopia, and it is located at the central south area of the country. It is divided into six woredas or districts and is home to the most elusive and complex profiles Ethiopia has to offer.

Worka's Cooperatives is part of Gedeb Woreda and it is composed of approximately 411 smallholders' producers, most of whom grow their coffee on the slopes of a mountain called Rudu. Here, coffee trees are grown by small-holders whom each own 0,25 to 2 hectares of land and shaded by a diverse range of fruit trees. In addition, it is a common practice for coffee growers to make homemade organic fertilizers to feed their plots, thus benefiting the local ecosystem and keeping the land healthy and balance.

Washing process: freshly harvested cherries are pulped the same day they are picked. Washed coffee is dried for up to 10 days. This depends on the altitude and weather conditions.
