Started by a close-knit Ethiopian coffee-producing family, Sookoo produces and exports high-quality coffee from some of the most well-known coffee regions in the world. Currently, the company is led by Ture Ware and manages washing stations in both Uraga and Shaakkisso Woredas.
Producers in this region face challenges with a lack of clean water and poor soil conservation. To ameliorate these threats, producers are beginning to work together and educate each other on different methods to conserve water and promote soil health.
Daannisa is the name of the region where these smallholders grow coffee and is also the name of an indigenous medicinal tree, famous in the hills of Ethiopia. To improve the biodiversity and climate of the area – indigenous trees similar to the Daannisa are being planted in this region. This also helps create a microclimate for the coffee and provide nutrients to the soil.
