Guji is a zone in the south of Ethiopia. The region has been one of our insider tips for excellent Ethiopian coffees for a few years now. We have been working with farmers from the region for many years and are thrilled by their coffee quality every year.
The washing station in Guji is located at a very high altitude of 2,050 m.a.s.l. and so the cherries here ripen late during the harvest season. This makes the cherries very sweet and provides optimal conditions for an exceptional coffee.
The farm in Guji belongs to our friend Heleanna and her team Moplaco. The team attaches great importance to a careful processing of the cherries. After picking, the ripe red coffee cherries are separated from unripe cherries by so-called floating in a water bath and then dried on raised drying beds in the sun for about 3 weeks. Meanwhile, the cherries are regularly turned by hand for even drying, with defective cherries being selected by hand. These naturally processed coffees are ideal for fans of filter coffees with fruity and complex flavours and exciting aromas.
