The Guji Zone is a well-known area in southern Ethiopia, situated between the Borena and Bale Zones. It has a typical floral, spicy (thyme) and citrusy profile reminiscent of the best Yirgacheffe coffee. In fact, the region exports coffees named either Sidama or Yirgacheffe depending on their label. This Guji is not necessarily typical of a Sidama (yellow fruit, apricot), but rather of a floral Yirgacheffe. Guji producers are some of the most sought-after specialty buyers.

The Guji Coffee Highland Export was created in 2005 with the aim of preparing and exporting the finest Ethiopian coffees. The company, based in Addis Ababa and Shakisso, is owned by three coffee plantations and several washing and drying stations.

Hangadhi is a coffee grown in orchards with complementary crops (beans, cabbage, etc.). It is located 10 km from Danbi Uddo in a special environment, as it is not produced as part of a semi-forest system and the plants contribute to a different type of coffee development. The complementary farming method provides nutrients needed for the coffee cherries to ripen well.

Marjorie works to raise producers' awareness in order to create a higher quality coffee and preserve the environment. This is why they use an African bed system that can be dismantled after the harvest period then reassembled the following year. We work with them because together we can improve production while respecting and preserving the environment. We will introduce you to microlots of fully-washed, natural and honey-processed coffee from this region at the next harvest.
