The Yukro cooperative was originally formed in 1977, in the village of Wanja, Qarsa in the Gera district of Jimma. Today they are part of the Hunda Oli cooperative which is part of the wider Kata Muduga Multipurpose Farmers' Cooperative Union. The Jimma region in southwestern Ethiopia is known for its low-quality production of the Djimma 5 grade which is synonymous with poorly produced and processed natural coffee. A low quality that pairs with low selling prices for the coffee both nationally and internationally. Yukro's exceptional coffee however derives partly from being a member of the Kata Muduga Coop - an overarching organization that includes some of the best known, highest quality producing washing stations in the country by helping them find good buyers and improve the standards of production.
