Guji is a beloved coffee region in Southern Ethiopia – the beans are grown in a forest jungle environment at an altitude of 1,500-2,350 meters above sea level, giving the beans plenty of time to mature slowly and develop plenty of taste. The region of Guji is named after a tribe of the Oromo people who have roamed the mountains for thousands of years.
The Guji region is also known for producing some of the best coffee in the world, with distinct flavor profiles that are highly sought after by coffee connoisseurs. The coffee grown in Guji is often described as having a floral and fruity taste, with notes of bergamot, peach, and jasmine. The region is home to several coffee cooperatives that work with smallholder farmers to produce high-quality coffee beans. These cooperatives help farmers with training, resources, and market access, ensuring that they receive a fair price for their coffee. The coffee industry in Guji is an important source of income for many people in the region, and it has helped to improve the economic prospects of local communities.
The coffee grown in Guji is also typically characterized by its bright acidity, floral notes, and fruity flavors. The region’s coffee farmers primarily grow heirloom varieties of Arabica coffee, which are indigenous to Ethiopia and have a rich history of cultivation in the country. The coffee is grown using traditional farming methods, and many farmers still handpick the coffee cherries to ensure only the ripest and highest quality beans are used. Due to its high quality and unique flavor profile, Guji coffee can commands premium price on the international market, which has helped to boost the local economy and improve the standard of living for coffee farmers in the region.
