In collaboration with our friends at Manhattan Coffee Roasters, we offer an Ethiopian coffee crafted by “The King of Guji” Ture Waji. Ture and his brother Assefa founded Sookoo coffee in late 2018, located in Odo Shakiso in the Oromia region and Guji zone. The cherries for this coffee come from various Kebeles (neighborhoods), with this batch specifically from the Shoondhisa Kebele.
Most of the cherries being delivered to the Sookoo coffee station from Shoondhisa are a combination of Gibirinna 74110 and Serto 74112. Both of these are from the Metu Bishari selections made in the forest of the same name in the Illubabur Zone by the Jimma Agricultural Research Center (JARC) in 1974. They were specifically selected for their resistance to coffee berry disease.
This lot has undergone an initial fermentation in plastic barrels for 48 hours and is then dried as a typical raised bed natural for 15 – 20 days.
Enjoy the distinct notes of grape, lime, and a hint of red jelly beans. A signature Ovride experience.
