This region and its growers are people named Guji Oromo, coming from Oromia woreda in southern Ethiopia. Coffee farming is an integral part of the culture in the highland areas. This region and its zones develop unique and exquisite tasting coffees.
Countless heirloom varieties are grown in semi-forest areas near the river Hamile. The soil is rich, loamy and brown. Harvesting time is between November and January. In combination with the micro climate and an annual rainfall of more than 1,700mm, extensive maturity duration and the natural process brings a sweet, floral, rich, silky and balanced cup.
The washing and sorting station was established in 2012 and comes with constant improvement of processing techniques to improve quality. The washing and sorting station receives coffee from 800+ farmers located around the local village of Ameli.
