Ethiopia, Guji, Small Farmer, Natural Process

Early arrival of super high quality Ethiopian coffee like this is usually rare and more so this year given the extreme conditions. We couldn't be happier to share this refreshing coffee with you as our first Guji release of the season. It's classically loaded with flavors of blueberry, chocolate, jasmine, and a bit of tropical fruit.

The Story

This Guji natural processed (dried in the fruit) lot was sourced from 3 farms (collectively 75 acres) around the community of Gatame Muka in the coveted Shakiso district. The farmers (Jilo Barko, Jarso Muda, Teklu Miju), deliver ripe cherries to the station in Shakiso, which is owned and operated by Guji Highland Coffee Plantation. Ripe cherries are carefully sorted and then placed on raised drying beds in thin layers to dry for 15 to 20 days and turned regularly to avoid over-fermentation and mold.  Raised beds are carefully constructed to ensure proper air circulation and temperature control, for optimal drying. Once the cherries are gently dried to 11 percent moisture, they are transported to the Guji Highland Coffee Plantation dry-mill where the same focus on sorting and quality control is executed through to the final export stage.
