  • Peach, cherry, lemon acidity, floral, syrupy body and well balanced.
  • Like most Ethiopian coffees, we prefer to keep this coffee light to medium to highlight all of the fruit characters in the coffee. This particular natural from Ye Genet station shows a really nice lime acidity that is definitely noticed in the light roasts. At medium roasts, the coffee becomes more cherry-syrup focused. Brews up great in any brewer!

About the coffee:

The coffee is grown under shade by more than 950 smallholder farmers from the Gorgora Kebele in the Dimtu Woreda. Freshly picked cherries are received at the Ye Genet washing station. The delivered coffee is sun dried in the cherry on raised beds for 28-40 days, depending on weather. During this time, the cherries are manually turned every couple of hours to encourage even drying as well as to stop mold and over fermentation. Average rainfall in the area is approximately 2000-2500mm annually with average temperatures ranging 20-23*C.

This Ethiopian was spectacular. Fairly easy to roast and the notes are unreal

Excellent Ethiopian

This Ethiopian is stellar. Couldn’t thank Luke enough for his guidance on selecting this one!

Found that this coffee roasted well in between light and medium. Most successful with longer rest time.

One of my favorites!

The Guji is one of my recent favorites as well as some of the people I roast for. Good stuff!
