This year during Covid19 we bought a few Guji for some reason. We feel that sweetness is relatively higher than the other Ethiopians. Guji is an area in Oromia, Southen Ethiopia. Like the Ethiopian coffee-growing zones in general, Guji also grows from high sea levels in rich volcanic soils.
Guji coffee has provided to be the perfect alternative to espresso and it is well suited for blending. Sweet medium size, citrus fruits, and cherished chocolate.
This is one of the highest-density coffee we have bought so far, the sweetness is incredibly high with notes of pink apricot on the table that was memorable during the cupping session. Roasting this coffee requires a little challenge as we need to increase ROR (rate of rise) to bring out the flavors. Out of 9 Ethiopians, this is one of the coffees we bought in. Comparing this coffee with Gelena Abaya and Aricha (sold out), personally feel that this coffee is closer to Bergamot and Pink apricots then blueberries.
This coffee is available 30th October onwards. (Limited stock) Reserve from your roaster if possible.
This coffee is worth a grab x 3
This exceptional Fully washed coffee was dry milled and exported by Primrose, PLC. The coffee was grown by smallholder farmers living around the kabele (town) of Goromo, in Oromia Region.
Most contributing farmers own less than a hectare of land, and they grow coffee simply as a backyard cash crop. Coffee will usually be interspersed with other subsistence crops, such as sweet potato, mangos and avocados, but there are no other primary cash crops grown in the region.
