THE HAILE STORY:
Haile, the godfather of Guji coffee and founder of Shakiss, together with his wife and seven daughters returned to his coffee roots and made a home in the highlands of Guji, Sidamo region where he inherited a piece of family land suitable to grow coffee. He spread seedlings among locals and convinced them that this crop would change their lives. In the last fifteen years, Haile saw Guji transform from a cattle farming area to a coffee region. Together with his two friends, Menno and Tesfaye, Haile put Guji coffee on the map. Today, more than 45 washing stations and 55 dry mills have been established since the introduction of coffee in Guji zone.
Sidamo is directly on the border with Kenya with the coffee being grown at 1500 metres or above. The soils in the highlands of Sidamo are heavily volcanic which contributes to the flavour and character of this fine coffee.
