About this Coffee:
This coffee was processed by Sookoo Coffee, which is run by Ture Waji, also known as “The King of Guji”! While this particular lot comes from Shaakkiso, Ture and his company Sookoo Coffee also have another washing station in Uraga.Ture has strong connections to the land, its community and farmers, as he grew up in the region. After studying, he started as an export and farm manager at his cousin’s farm and company Mormora, and then later at Guji Highlands Coffee. Thanks to the trade and coffee liberalization in Ethiopia, he was able to start Sookoo Coffee (formerly known as Dambi Uddo),building his first drying station and exporting his first coffee under his own brand in 2018. Between harvests, Ture and his team educate farmers on good agricultural practices, in order to help improve the quality of their cherry. His company also provides pre-harvest loans to farmers who need it,for example to pay for hired labor to do maintenance on the farm, such as weeding and planting. The washing stations employ a ‘woman-first’ policy and the company has built a school for the children.Roads have also been built to improve the infrastructure
This coffee is an extremely approachable easy drinking natural Ethiopia and exactly the kind of coffee we look for when we are buying. It showcases Ture Waji's commitment to incredible quality and why they call the "King of Guji".
