Bookkisa is the name of a sub kebele (Hamlet) where the Bookkisa group of 33 farmers are located. Average farm size of each member is 2.55 hectares.

The coffee grows under a canopy of natural forest, much like most of Guji Coffees in the area. The fertile red land is made of Clay and Loam. All of these farmers are trained in agronomy and post-harvest practices by the “King of Guji”, Ture Waji. What’s unique about how these drying stations are managed are the drying beds themselves: each day lot is tracked with a tag for each bed, listing the specific delivery and the start date of drying and relative Moisture Content Readings for each day.
