Ethiopia Gubata- Natural
A brand new Ethiopia natural coffee brought to you by the Gubata Farmers Group and an old friend Ture Waji at Sookoo Coffee. We are thrilled to offer our customers this stellar natural coffee. Notes of cherry, cola, and rambutan linger between each sip and are sure to please your desire for an exceptional cup of Ethiopian coffee.
This coffee is produced by farmers in Gubata Farmers Group working with Ture Waji and his company, Sookoo Coffee. The farms are situated in East Guji, Shakiso Woreda at altitudes exceeding 2,100 meters above sea level. The landscape here is rugged and stunning, with wide swaths of forest and rich, volcanic soil. The high altitude, warm days and cool nights are perfect for growing sweet, dense cherry.
Farming methods in Guji remain largely traditional. Farmers typically intercrop their coffee plants with other food crops, including beans, peas and enset (false banana), which is a staple in the region’s cuisine. This method is common among smallholders because it maximizes land use and provides food for their families.
In addition to being traditionally intercropped, most farms are also organic-by-default. Farmers in Guji typically use very few—if any—fertilizers or pesticides. Most farm work is done manually and very few tasks are mechanized, even during processing.
