This is a new, 240 hectare farm (established in 2012) with the aim of producing top quality coffee in a socially and environmentally responsible manner. Historically, Guji coffees have been exported as coming from Sidamo, but after many years of lobbying the Ethiopian government for a geographical distinction, it is now possible to separate it.

While the cup profile is quite similar to Sidamo coffees, there’s certainly something more in the terroir of Guji – no doubt due in part to the soaring altitude coupled with a nice diverse mix of heirloom Typica varieties. This is our last Ethiopian release of the season, and we saved a ringer for you, with beautiful articulate flavour that reminds us of floral aromatic pears, and bright ripe kumquat.
