Jigesa (pronounced “Jee-gee-sa”) is a privately-owned washing station that is located in the Shakisso district in the Guji zone of Ethiopia’s Southern Oromia State. It is named after the ‘kebele’ (local village) of Jigesa. The washing station sits at 1,945m above sea level and is located very close to Yirgacheffe. Coffee is delivered daily to Jigesa by around 850 local smallholder farmers. The majority of these families farm organically on tiny plots of land (averaging 2 – 5 hectares in size) located 1,800–1,950m above sea level. Coffee is their main cash crop, and grows under the shade of Birbira, Wanza and Acacia trees. Jigesa is owned by Testi Coffee, a family owned company with whom we have recently partnered with to directly source our Ethiopian offerings (see above).
