DT Coffee Ethiopia Guji Shakiso is an organic coffee and comes from the Tade GG farm which is then processed at the Sewana washing station in the kebele, or village, of the same name. As an organic coffee, the Shakiso coffee was grown without the use of any herbicides, pesticides, or other agrochemicals. The washing station assigns each lot an ID code to maintain traceability. Shakiso is a woreda, or district, in the Guji Zone of the Oromia region.
The coffee varieties in this lot, heirloom locally selected sub variety 74110 and 74112, are common in the Guji zone. They were developed in the 1970’s at the Jimma Agricultural Research Center (JARC) for resistance to the coffee berry disease. These two varieties begin with “74” to indicate their cataloging and selection in 1974. Variety 74110 was selected from an original “mother tree” found within the Oromia region.
