Kaffa Chiri Cooperative
- Kaffa = KuH - Fah
- Chiri = Chh - Ree
Chiri Cooperative is located in the Decha district of the Kaffa Zone, which is in the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region. The zone gets its name from the old Kingdom of Kaffa, which spanned parts of what is now south western Ethiopia from 1390–1897. It is also where coffee is rumored to have been discovered, which explains why Kaffa and coffee sound so similar.
Chiri Cooperative was started in 2010. With NGO support a wet mill for processing coffees and providing much needed agronomical and business support to the farmers was established dramatically improving coffee quality and output. Chiri Cooperative provides support to a few hundred local small-holder farmers in the region.
