ETHIOPIA - Shakisso G1 Natural
Guji Shakiso

The people are known as Gujii Oromo, and coffee farming has been a core part of the culture in the highland areas. It's a distinct coffee from Yirga Cheffe, and Sidamo. Geographically, culturally, and in terms of cup flavors, these southern coffees have a different flavor profile while maintaining the same general characteristics; citrus and floral accents, a lively cup character. The cultivars used in Ethiopia are largely regional, distinct local strains of coffees that have spread from the wild forest plants of western Ethiopia, to Harar in the East and to the southern districts like Guji. We've carried washed coffee from this area, but washed is usually the exception. They are known for producing some of the better dry-processed coffees in Shakiso, and for good reason.   Cup characteristics Dark berries and tropical fruits aroma, winey, hints of mango and passion fruit acidity, smooth body with floral  notes, honey sweetness, and grapefruit.

There are many reasons for this but primarily it is the favourable climate and geography, fine flavoured varietals and good processing technique. The prevailing weather conditions in East Africa along with high altitude from the mountainous terrain offer great growing conditions. At high altitude the two endemic varietals SL28 and SL34, selected from 'French Mission' and Bourbon respectively, are grown mostly by smallholder farmers and produce exceptional cup quality with high natural fruit acidity, especially malic acid (which gives green apple its bite). The local custom of long (multi-day) wet fermentation is also believed to contribute significantly to enhancing the natural fruit derived flavours and clean cup profile in fine Kenyan coffee.   Cup characteristics: Black currant, mixed berries aroma, prominent dark ripe berries, grape sweetness, juicy and syrupy body, sweet and memorable aftertaste.
