Story

Sookoo

Sookoo coffee is owned and operated by Ture Waji. As a company, Sookoo builds some of the cleanest naturally processed coffees we have ever tasted. We fondly remember two Sookoo lots from last year: Okoluu and Goraa. They often show clear florality and crisp acidity, with little to no booziness. Sookoo is located in Odo Shaakiso, Guji. They source their coffee from surrounding kebeles and have historically named their lots based on the kebele.

This lot is an example of an exciting new project Sookoo has undertaken. Single producer coffees are exceedingly rare in Ethiopia. This past harvest, Sookoo began collecting and keeping separate cherries from some small producers. This lot is from Mi'eessaa Robe, a farmer from the Sukke Qutto Kebele, who grows coffee under indigenous shade trees at the staggeringly high elevations of 2100-2350 masl. With this being only the first year of Sookoo's endeavour to bring single farmer Guji naturals to the international specialty market, we are very excited to see how this project grows in the future.

Guji

This famous coffee growing region is known for its rich, volcanic soil high altitudes, bi-modal rainfall patterns and dry weather which allows for coffee to develop slowly and consistently here.

Local Landraces

Being the genetic store-house for coffee in the world, many Ethiopian coffees are a selection of Landrace varieties: a collection of varietes that have been passed down and traded regionally. JARC (the Jimma Agricultural Research Centre) is responsible for much of the preservation, development, and dissemination of varieties in the country.
