This area is also known as the Gedeo Zone. Guji is a region that was pooled together with Sidamo until a few years ago. Located in the southern portion of Sidamo, Guji is now one of the zones of the Oromia Region of Ethiopia and is categorized distinctly from Sidamo or Yirgacheffe. This particular coffee mill is called Jigesa.

It is one of the most rural remote areas imaginable. 8 hours of dusty, nearly impassable dirt roads with incredible views. Sometimes the coffee has to be packed out with horses because travel is so difficult.

Being a washed processed coffee, you have to keep it at a light roast, roughly 20 seconds after the 1st cracks have stopped is our sweet spot.  Erring too light will make it sour.  Erring too dark will make it bitter and no fruit flavor. We're tasting rose, apple, and bergamot. Also lemon and lander notes.
