This coffee comes from Guji, located in the Oromia region in southern Ethiopia, near the Kenyan border. His lord is one of the districts of the region.
The overall quality of the coffees from this region is exceptional. As Ethiopia is the homeland of coffee, thousands of different varieties have emerged naturally over the years with very interesting properties. The volcanic soil of Guji is rich in minerals that are ideal for demanding Arabica coffee.
Traditionally, small producers in Guji live in harmony with nature.
At 1750 to 2300 m above sea level, the coffee cherries ripen in natural forests that surround the farmers ’land, where they are picked by hand and transferred to the washing station. Heleanna Georgalis has been at the head of the company since 2008, she is immersed in the third wave of coffee, mainly dealing with the quality of the coffee she exports. He continues his father’s legacy and claims to feel a passion in this world where he can experiment with the processes himself and find joy in the end result. It is important to point out that the uniqueness of Ethiopian coffees lies in the fact that coffee plants are "not genetically modified". There are a thousand undiscovered varieties in Ethiopia, and but the known ones remain intact, Heleanna emphasizes this every time she talks about the subject. Ethiopia is the cradle of coffee, the varieties are typical of each area, scientists have recognized 37 varieties, 34 of which are natural. Many times we have found that Ethiopian coffee is a Heirloom variety, and this means that “ancient root” does not define the variety but is rather generic. The variety is named after the name of the area in which it grows and where it has been growing for years, it must have the characteristic taste of the area.
