Ethiopia's Coffee Legacy

Ethiopia is often revered as the “birthplace” of Arabica coffee. Unlike other coffee-growing countries where coffee was introduced as a cash crop, in Ethiopia, coffee cultivation, processing, and consumption are woven into everyday life. The trees, discovered growing wild in forests, were eventually cultivated for household use and commercial sale. The Guji region, with its beautiful forests and rich history, is the perfect backdrop for this exceptional coffee.

The Coffee

This Ethiopian gem is processed using the natural method, also known as the dry or sundried process. This traditional technique, rooted deeply in Ethiopian culture, involves drying the coffee cherries in the sun without removing the fruit. The result? The beans absorb the pulp and sugars, enriching them with the fruit’s natural flavors. The drying process can take anywhere from 8 to 25 days, depending on the weather. This meticulous care is evident in every bean.
