The Worka Cooperative encompasses 2540 farmers who work an average of 1.77 hectares per producer. All of the washed lots are repulsed the day they are harvested, and then washed and spread out to dry for around 7 days. Many of the coffees are grown alongside native fruit trees, which allows for the traditional method of adding shade and nitrogen breakdown to the soil to fertilize and regenerate the ecosystem on the farm.
The town of Worka is located in the southern part of the Yirgacheffe region in the Gedeb woreda. Most people around Worka work in agricultural sectors, and coffee is the oldest and best paying cash crop. Small scale growers, some of whom own less than an acre of land, bring their cherries to community washing stations at Worka for processing. Coffees from Worka are grown at around 1900 meters above sea level on average, and the elevation combined with their perfect geographical location makes for some of the cleanest and most consistent coffees in the greater Sidamo region.
