     Sookoo Coffee operates in Ethiopia, in the Guji zone of the Oromia region. While the western part of Guji is lush with forests and jungles, Sookoo is located on the more arid eastern side. The area is rich in minerals and gold, and heavy strip mining has led to major deforestation. Responsible coffee growing presents an opportunity to refresh the area’s landscape both economically and ecologically. “Sookoo” is the word in the local language for “gold” — and Ture believes coffee can be “the new gold,” revitalizing the land rather than exploiting it. Sookoo Coffee operates several drying stations high in the mountains outside Shakisso. They incentivize local farmers to sell top-quality coffee cherries by paying one to two birr higher per kilogram. Prices are arranged before harvest, so farmers know what to expect without need for haggling. Sookoo also offers training and financing for farmers, and schooling for kids, promoting education and improved coffee growing practices.
     This natural process offering comes from Bookkisa, a locality near the town of Shakisso in Southern Ethiopia, and represents about 35 farmers who are part of the group of Sookoo coffee growers. Natural processing methods complement the signature, fruit-forward flavor profile of this region’s coffee. We taste ripe red fruits such as strawberry, honey and milk chocolate in the cup.

We ship freshly roasted coffee Monday through Friday via UPS ground. Most orders placed before 2pm EST will ship same day.

Delayed, Lost or Stolen Packages 

We will do our best to help troubleshoot with you, but we
cannot control what happens when your package leaves the roasting
facility. Once the package has been picked up, it is out of our hands. 

Holidays, severe weather, carrier staff shortage and high package volumes are causing delays in package transit time. 

As a small business, we are unable to absorb the costs of
packages being lost in transit. We cannot refund orders that are marked
as delivered with a tracking number, even if a customer is stating they
haven’t received the package. 

For UPS claims, please email us at

When checking out, *Please make sure your address is correct!*

In order to balance getting your coffee out to
you as quickly as possible with freshness of roast we ship all coffee as
ordered within one week of the roast date. We typically roast
Wednesdays and Fridays.

In our experience most coffees
taste best after a few days rest, and high quality coffees stay at peak
flavor up to six weeks post roast.
