Description: Certified Organic Guji is a recent addition to the coffees being exported from Ethiopia. Historically it has been exported as a Sidamo type, but after many years of lobbying, the Ethiopian government has granted Guji its own geographical distinction. While the cup profile is quite similar to Sidamo coffees, some people feel that there is a “little something special” in the coffee from Guji.
It has gained a reputation due to its unique and differentiating flavor profiles. Guji is named after a tribe of the Oromo people. This coffee from the Kayon Mountain Farm is processed using a natural/dry process that the Oromo people have been using for millenia.
The Kayon Mountain Coffee Farm was established in 2012 with the aim of producing top quality coffee in a socially and environmentally responsible manner. The farm management offers free transportation services as well as financial support for building schools and administration buildings for community. Kayon Mountain farm has a nursery onsite and utilizes shade trees to protect the coffee as well as for creating compost to fertilize naturally.
Grown at high altitude, in fertile soil, and graced by loads of rain and the hands of expert farmers, this coffee lends itself to juicy and complex fruit flavors, with a softer tone than some of its washed Ethiopia counterparts.
