Name: Guji Shakisso G1
Farm: Kercha Washing Station
This very special coffee is from the sub region of Danbi Uddo of Shikasso, Guji, in the southeastern part of Ethiopia. Imagine an area where 850 individual farmers with their own properties, bring their heirloom coffee cherries to a collective washing station to be processed and sold. The average farm size? Approximately 2.5 hectares in size, with corn, grains, and false bananas typically growing alongside the coffee, as well as Birbira, Wanza, and Acacia trees for shade. On cold winter days, this coffee reminds us of a warm summer afternoon.
