It is widely believed that the Oromo people started using coffee as early as the 10th century AD, although not as a drink but mixed with edible fat to create small balls that people chewed on to ward off tiredness. It was an ideal snack to carry on long and tiring journeys.Read More
2 Drying Stations
Fine Ethiopian Coffee Beans Straight from Our Drying Stations
To control the quality and consistency of the coffee we supply to our customers, we have built two drying stations in Guji Zone, Hambela Wamena Woreda. To be precise, our drying stations are in Goro Bedesa Kebele and Bente Neka Kebele of Hambela Wamena Woreda.Learn more about our sites
Sourced directly from our drying stations
Our coffee is unique because it comes from a single drying station in Hambela Wamena Woreda in Guji Zone. Our coffees are sourced from nearby farmers who bring their coffees directly to our drying station.
At our drying station, coffee is sorted to remove damaged or underripe cherry. Cherry is then delivered onto raised beds to dry under shade for 10-14 days until the moisture content reaches 12%. During this time, the cherry is regularly turned and hand-sorted several times to remove any damaged or discolored cherry. This labor-intensive, yet effective way of production, produces a coffee bean that truly has an exquisite cup profile.

According to the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX), the Sidamo region is divided into five geographical areas: namely Sidamo A, B, C, D & E. These areas are neither divided based on the quality of coffee nor politically defined borders, rather they define a mere geographical indication. This broad definition for Sidamo coffees has made the region the largest coffee producer in Ethiopia.Read More
The Guji Zone lies approximately 400 km south of Addis Ababa in the Guji Zone of the Oromia Region. Prior to 2002, Guji coffee was bundled together with Yirgacheffe and Sidamo coffee under the umbrella “Sidamo” name. However, after 2002, Guji coffee (as well as Yirgacheffe coffee) is now recognized by its own name.Read More
