Ethiopian coffee is the favorite of many who appreciate notes of fruit and florals in their cups. These profiles of berries and citrus are possible thanks to countless genetic heirloom varietals paired with pristine growing conditions. The Washed Guji showcases Ethiopian coffee’s distinct floral qualities, at times reminding the drinker more of tea than of coffee as we traditionally know it. Our Washed Guji is roasted to bring out sweet lemon, black currant berry flavors, and a delicate floral ribbon to tie it all together.
Where is it from?
Hambela farm is nestled in the fertile state of Oromia, with 494 acres devoted to coffee crops. The farm is a subset of METAD, an agriculture development company responsible for growing and harvesting under strict standards, grading the resulting crop in their quality lab, and allocating the coffees to export. METAD is a frontrunner in sustainable farming and processing practices. They are also making socially responsible choices, which has led them to a large number of female employees and a reinvestment in the community at large.
