Guji Highlands is a 250 hectare, family owned farm established in 2012 by Wodessa Yachisi. It is near the town of Shakisso in the Guji Zone. Guji Highland tops out at 2300 metres above sea level, and is nestled in what can only be described as a natural cloud forest. The farm’s production is 100%
organic. Guji is a recent addition to the range of beautiful coffees being exported from Ethiopia. Historically it has been exported as a Sidamo type, but after many years of lobbying the Ethiopian government introduced Guji as a geographical distinction. While the cup profile might be sometimes quite similar to Sidamo coffees, some people feel that there is a “little something special” in the terroir of Guji.
