Producer Profile

This washed lot comes from Ture Wail's Weessi drying station in Hangadhi Kebele, Shakiso, Guji. Over the years, we have bought quite a few different lots from Ture's company, Sookoo, often through our importing partner, Osito. Osito themselves were Sookoo's very first customer, and Ture is a partner in Osito's Ethiopian business. Until last year, all of Sookoo's production was focused on natural coffees, for which they are very famous. This, their second washed lot, is special and gives us a clear representation of Guji terroir. This coffee was de-pulped using an eco-pulper, and was then wet fermented for 12 hours. After fermentation, the coffee was dried on raised beds.

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.

74110 & 74112

Short and compact with small leaves, cherries, and beans; Gibirinna 74110 is one of the most planted varieties in Ethiopia. The mother tree of this variety was selected in 1974 by JARC (Jimma Agricultural Research Centre) in the Metu province for its CBD resistance. After research and development by JARC, it was released in 1979 and recommended for planting in the altitude range of 1,500-2,100 masl.

74112 is one of six selections that were approved for release in 1974 as part of a CBD-resistance (Coffee Berry Disease) selection program. During the 1970's, researchers from the Jimma Agricultural Research Centre searched the forests in the Illuababora zone for CBD-resistant mother trees. Today 74112 has been widely distributed across most growing regions in the country.
