Zelelu is produced by Zelelu Ararso and processed as a separate lot at the Addis Katema Cooperative where Zelelu Ararso is a member, located in the district of Wenago in the Gedeo Zone, Ethiopia. Zelelu Ararso is part of the single producer project developed jointly between the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU) and Royal Coffee. The project was initiated in 2012 with a handful of ‘Model’ producers from cooperatives organized under the YCFCU umbrella who have been willing to work with a rigorous set of processing standards, regular farm visits from the Royal team, and higher cup qualifications. In exchange, producers earn higher quality premiums based on the sale of their individual lots. Zelelu is fully washed and dried on raised beds.
