Jigesa (pronounced “Jee-gee-sa”) is a privately-owned washing station that is located in the Shakisso woreda(administrative district) in Ethiopia’s Guji zone of the famous Sidama region. It is named after the kebele (local village) of Jigesa. The washing station is one of twenty owned and managed by Testi Coffee, a family-owned company founded by Mr Faysel A. Yonis.

Sitting at 1,740m above sea level, Jigesa produces exceptional washed and natural processed lots. Coffees that are grown and processed in Sidama showcase an extremely diverse range of flavour profiles, and are noted for their intensely fruit-forward, tea-like, floral and complex character that is sought after worldwide.

This coffee has been processed using the washed method, using clean water from the Mormora and Bishan Dimo rivers. It is classified as Grade 1, the highest quality classification for Ethiopian coffees, indicating a great deal of effort has been put into the selection and grading during processing.
