Buku Sayisa is a washing station owned by Isayas Beriso, near the town of Buku in the Hambela Wamena/Dimtu region of Guji. Buku Sayisa is a single estate coffee farm, Isayas has about 12 hectares of land where he is growing coffee while he also purchases some cherry from local farmers within a small radius of his farm. This particular lot, Lot #3 is made up of roughly 10-15% cherries from local farmers while the remainder is grown on Isayas' farm.
We love this coffee and find it to be very vibrant and fruit-forward while also being sparkling clean. The extreme elevations that this coffee is grown along with meticulous processing leave us with a cup of amazing quality and complexity.
We have a soft spot for coffee from Guji, and this one is a great example of why they are some of our favorites.
