YCFCU is really working to be proactive in term of promoting quality and getting higher prices for their coffees. They are setting up some measures that are supposed to increase the quality of the coffee they ship to their customer, which include premiums based on grade delivered. YCFCU is holding a cooperatives scorecard that puts the cooperatives into 3 different categories : -‐ Category 1 : These cooperatives are the most consistent in regard to quality, but also the ones that are dedicated to the Union and the one that are getting a higher demand from buyers. What I call the « hype » cooperatives. In this category we find Idido, Adado, Hafursa, Konga, Worka, BankoGotiti, and Adame. -‐ Category 2 : The cooperatives are showing good signs of development with a very decent quality and some positive signs in term of loyalty to the Union. In this category we find Biloya, Hama, or Arramo (and many more). -‐ Category 3 : These cooperatives are the ones that just started working with YCFCU or the ones that are not really demanded by the market. YCFCU exported 100 containers in the last season (13-‐14). They plan to export 220 containers in 14-‐15. This increase is due to a better harvest. YCFCU is now processing its coffee into its own processing facility in Addis. They still have no lab yet and are sometimes using SCFCU lab.
