Ethiopia Coffee Map

For our first Ethiopian release of the season we are returning to Sookoo Coffee for the second consecutive harvest to share this exceptional lot from the village of Bookkisa. This is a pristinely clean and elegant natural, with ripe sweetness, juicy acidity and a vibrant profile reminding us of grapefruit, pineapple and peach.

Sookoo Coffee was founded by Ture Waji and his brother, Assefa. Located in Odo Shakiso within the Oromia region and the Guji zone, Sookoo Coffee currently produce only naturally-processed coffees with cherry sourced from smallholder producers in the surrounding kebeles – in this case, Bookkisa.

This lot is made up of two varieties, Gibirinna 74110 and Serto 74112, both of which originate from the Metu Bishari forest, selected by the Jimma Agricultural Research Centre in 1974 for their resistance to Coffee Berry Disease. After delivery to Sookoo’s centralised location, the cherries go through intensive sorting before immediately being put out to dry on raised African beds for 21-28 days. Here, the cherries are kept in extremely shallow layers and turned at least six times per day to ensure even and precise drying, the results of which are sparklingly clean, expressive and transparent coffees.

Below is the key transparency data relating to this coffee. To find our more about our commitment to transparency, check out our latest annual transparency report.
