We're thrilled to release another Ethiopian coffee by "The King of Guji" Ture Waji! Ture and his brother Assefa founded Sookoo coffee in late 2018. Located in Odo Shakiso within the Oromia region and Guji zone. The cherries are sourced from the surrounding Kebeles (neighborhoods) and the lots are named after the Kebele's from which the coffee is grown. This specific lot is from the Shoondhisa Kebele.
Most of the cherries being delivered to the Sookoo coffee station from Shoondhisa are a combination of Gibirinna 74110 and Serto 74112. Both of these are from the Metu Bishari selections made in the forest of the same name in the Illubabur Zone by the Jimma Agricultural Research Center (JARC) in 1974. They were specifically selected for their resistance to coffee berry disease.
This lot is dried as a traditional natural on raised beds and you can expect notes of blueberry compote, strawberry juice and white sugar.
