Gigesa is the name of the washing station, founded by Faysel Abdosh Yonis in 2014. Gigesa Washing Station is located in Danbi Uddo, in the Shakiso district, within the renowned Guji Zone of Ethiopia.

Around 850 smallholder farmers bring their coffee to Gigesa, with a mix of Ethiopian land- race varieties as is often the case in coffees from Ethiopia. These coffees are grown under a variety of shade trees, and the farms themselves are quite small, averaging 2.5 hectares in size. After the coffee has been sorted, it is fermented for 48 hours in water tanks, fed by the local river. The coffee is then dried on raised beds in select areas of the station where windflow aids in even drying of the coffee, which is crucial to flavor and the longevity of the coffee once it is shipped.

We're excited to see Gigesa return to our lineup, with sweet peach and crisp citrus giving us the characteristic flavors from this washed process Ethiopian coffee that we've come to know and enjoy.
