This lot was produced by the Gubata Farmers’ Group in tandem with Ture Waji and his company, Sookoo Coffee, a high-profile producer and exporter of organic specialty coffee. Hand-harvested cherry cultivated by growers in the Gubata Farmers’ Group is delivered to the Gubata Farm’s washing station located in East Guji, Shakiso woreda. At the mill, cherry is sorted and then spread on raised beds to dry, raked frequently to ensure consistency. The drying cycle completes in 2-3 weeks.
Farming methods in Guji remain largely traditional with most farms organic by default. Few steps are mechanized, even during processing. Coffee is typically intercropped with beans, peas and enset (a wild African banana relative used in porridge and bread). In the past decade, Guji earned recognition as a distinct coffee origin from its neighbors Sidamo and Yirgacheffe. A rugged and steep terrain supported by warm days and cool nights contribute to Guji’s reputation for unique profiles and exceptional quality.
