Ethiopia Guji Gigesa
This coffee comes to us direct from the Gigesa Washing Station, within the region of Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia. Yirgacheffe is the now legendary “birthplace” of Arabica coffee; a region where ancient tradition collides with global demand for uniquely delicious coffees grown and processed with care. The Oromia Region is comprised of roughly 850 smallholder farmers that collaborate to bring their best ripe cherries to Gigesa for wet processing and access to the global specialty coffee market. This delicious coffee yields delicately sweet and vibrant flavors of stewed apricot and tropical fruit, balanced by a meyer lemon acidity, a floral bouquet, and caramelized sugar & dark chocolate finish.

About the Guji region:
Guji is one of the zones of the Oromia Region of Ethiopia, named after the Oromo People, the ancient tribe credited with cultivating this uniquely distinct coffee cultivar. Guji is bordered on the south by Borena, on the west by the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples Region, on the north by the Ganale Dorya River which separates it from Bale and on the east by the Somali Region.
Like Yirgacheffe, coffees from the Guji region were previously categorized together with coffees from Sidamo. However, Guji coffees are rather distinct from both Yirgacheffe and Sidamo coffees. Located in the southern portion of Sidamo, the people of Guji have a long tradition of coffee cultivation dating back centuries. The hills and landscape of the Guji region allow for the development of truly unique cultivars, yielding aromas and flavors distinct to the Oromo People.
