Wessi Tima Washed, from Ethiopia

Our Washed Tima lot is produced at the Wessi Washing Station, located deep within the Guji Zone, in Ethiopia’s Oromia Regional State. It is truly a one-of-a-kind coffee from the passionate producers at Sookoo Coffee. The Wessi Washing Station is located approximately 415 kilometers away from Addis Ababa and sits at an elevation ranging from 2,000 to 2,180 meters above sea level, offering optimal conditions for producing high quality coffee. This coffee comes from the collaborative effort of 35 dedicated farmers from the small village of Tima, hence its name.

These farmers nurture their coffee trees, harvesting only red ripe cherries, as Sookoo Coffee has instructed them during trainings, and upon arriving to the wet-mill, the cherries are carefully de-pulped with a demucilaginator. Following a 12-hour wet fermentation and washing, the beans are laid to dry on raised African beds. Hourly rotation ensues ensures quality, while the beans dry in the Ethiopian sun for 14 to 18 days; this slow drying results in helping maintain a flavor profile that truly captures the beans potential.

Always with quality in mind...

Sookoo Coffee is led by Ture Waji, who places utmost importance on quality and training. Close collaboration with local farmers enables knowledge exchange and skill development. From seed preparation to harvesting, post-harvesting, and processing, Ture himself and his team supervise every step meticulously, ensuring not only quality, but consistency year over year.

But their impact extends beyond coffee production. In an effort to give back to the community, they have led projects like the construction of roads and on school a couple of years ago, as well as donations of school supplies to the local children. This is Sookoo’s commitment to the next generation’s education.
Not only have they expanded, but they also plan to build out their own dry mill for an easier and more efficient exporting process. In addition, while they originally only produced Naturals, over the years they have added Anaerobic Naturals, Honeys and now this year, Washed lots to their offerings.

We invite you to experience the passion, expertise, and community-driven values that make Sookoo and this coffee truly exceptional!
