The Guji region is named for one of the tribes of the Oromo and is one of the administrative zones of the Oromia region. The zone was created in 2002 when the uplands of Borena zone were split to create it.
The Guji region enjoys ideal coffee growing conditions. Its volcanic soil is bursting with nutrients, creating deep red and brown top-layer of soil. The regions' high altitude, bi-modal rainfall pattern and dry weather allow for the cherries to develop slowly.
This coffee has those classic bursting fruit flavors we've come to love about natural Ethiopian coffees. It reminds us of sweet strawberries and agave nectar with a buttery mouthfeel and a pleasant acidity that makes us think of granny smith apples.
