This coffee is produced by farmers in Uddeyi Farmers Group working with Ture Waji and his company, Sookoo Coffee. They cultivate coffee at the lofty altitudes of 2,000 to 2,180 meters above sea level. The warm day and cool nights at this altitude are perfect for growing sweet, dense cherry.
Farming methods in Guji remain largely traditional. Guji farmers typically intercrop their coffee plants with other food crops, including beans, peas and enset. This method is common among smallholders because it maximizes land use and provides food for their families.
All coffee is selectively hand-harvested before being delivered to Uddeyi Farm’s washing station. At the station, coffee is sorted to remove damaged or underripe cherry and is then laid on raised beds to dry. Cherry is raked frequently to ensure even drying. It takes approximately 2 to 3 weeks for cherry to dry.
