Hailing from the birthplace of coffee, Ear Candy is infectious in nature and creates a wanting for more of this scrumptious roast. This coffee is grown among the highest elevations of the Guji zone giving it a flavor profile that is clean and sweet, reminiscent of the deep grooves and slick melodies of the delightful modern era of jazz. Sit back and enjoy this vibrant and versatile coffee using your favorite brew method.
This coffee was processed by Sookoo Coffee, which is run by Ture Waji, also known as “The King of Guji”! While this particular lot comes from Uraga, Ture and his company Sookoo Coffee also have another washing station in Shakiso. Both “washing” stations currently only produce natural coffees, but washed coffees are in the plans for upcoming harvests. Ture has strong connections to the land, its community and farmers, as he grew up in the region. After studying, he started as an export and farm manager at his cousin’s farm and company Mormora, and then later at Guji Highlands Coffee. Thanks to the trade and coffee liberalization in Ethiopia, he was able to start Sookoo Coffee (formerly known as Dambi Uddo), building his first washing station and exporting his first coffee under his own brand in 2018.
Three Keys Coffee speaks a language that’s sophisticated yet accessible to everyone who’s willing to slow down and share a cup.
