Introducing our next direct trade, which also falls under the RARE line, Ethiopia Uraga Guji Anaerobic Natural!

About the region
Guji is an area located in the south of Ethiopia, in the Oromia region. This area is agriculturally rich and famous for its coffee production. The Guji area is surrounded by picturesque mountains, which creates an ideal microclimate for growing arabica. This area is also characterised by its shady coffee plantations, where coffee trees are surrounded by a variety of flora and fauna.

The coffee has been grown by approximately 700 small farmers who deliver their devil-harvested coffee to the Uraga processing plant.

The coffee cherries are hand-picked at the optimum stage of ripeness, ensuring that only the best cherries are processed further.

This process allows the cherries to ferment with their own enzymes, which leads to the decomposition of certain compounds and creates unique chemical reactions inside. Anaer
