Sakaro Sodo is produced in the kebele (village) of Banko Tatatu, about 7 kilometres from the largest nearby town of Gedeb. Washing station owner Asegedech Sholi purchases cherries from the smallholder farmers in the surrounding region, which is resplendent with young trees, rich soils and a perfect climate for coffee cultivation. We’ve loved Gedeb-located Yirgacheffe coffees for a while, and were lucky to have an opportunity to buy this coffee via Andebet Kassa, who we met in 2020. We saw a young man working with new processing styles and ridiculous levels of fruit ripeness, and a deep passion for quality. When he started a new export company in 2021 we jumped on board to work directly with him. “Sakaro Sodo” is the name we’ve chosen for this coffee to give visibility to an important Megalithic Site located nearby. Welcome to world of confusing place names and coffee identities in Ethiopia!
