Guji Highland is a 250 hectare, family owned farm established in 2012 by Wodessa Yachisi in the Guji zone of Ethiopia. Reaches up to altitudes of 2300m, Guji Highland is Nestled in what has been described as a natural cloud forest. This remote and peaceful 250ha is one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever seen coffee grown.
The farm was planted in stages and is between 3 and 4 years old, with new seedlings cultivated each year using seeds collected from indigenous mother trees. The farm’s production is 100% organic and the moment you step onto the land you sink into the deep topsoil, rich with organic matter which has naturally decomposed over decades.
In addition to the Guji Highlands farmland, coffees are also sourced from smallholders or out growers in the local vicinity, making up an additional 400 hectares of prime coffee land. Each of the smallholders who work with Guji Highland are managed and given expert advice, starting from seed selection from wild coffee tree to production and processing.
We chose this very special coffee to be part of our winter offering due to it perfectly capturing our ideal Natural process Ethiopian profile.
The traditional flavours of Blueberries and Strawberry compote are enriched by a gentle floral sweetness akin to Palma violets or Turkish delight.
