Bookkisa comes to us from Ture Waji, of Sookko Coffee. We have been working with Ture for several years now on our natural Ethiopians, and he is known for producing some of the cleanest naturals in the country. His coffee, Laayyoo was the first natural we ever bought as we were incredibly impressed with the flavor clarity in the cup. Since then we were told that Ture one day would like to process a washed coffee. This lot, processed at the Odo Shakiso site is the first washed lot Ture has processed and we are really happy to share it.
We find this coffee to be a great example of the flavors from Guji. Lemon and lime are the first notes we find, followed by softer melon and a buttery mouthfeel leading to vanilla and black tea.
