The Guji zone was started as a new production area in 2002. It is located in the Southern portion of Sidamo, and is named after the Oromo people. Who area a tribe with a long, proud history in coffee production.
Coffees from Guji were previously classified as ‘Sidamo’ (a very wide area including much of central-south Ethopia). However, now they are independent from this since they are so unique. This is driven by a number of factors, including high altitudes, rich, fertile soil, and exceptional heirloom varieties.
Guji is bordered on the south and west by Borena, on the north by Gedeo and Sidama, and on the east by Bale and the Somali Region. Coffees that are classified as ‘Gujis’, come from the ‘woreda’ (administrative regions) of Adoola Redi, Uraga, Kercha, Shakisso and Bule Hora (where this lot is from).
Most communities in the region still live rurally and make a living from farming. Coffee remains the main cash crop for most families in the Guji region, who grow coffee alongside food for consumption, and other cash crops such as the Ethiopian banana.
The majority of producers farm organically on small plots of land (averaging 0.7 hectares) at 1,900–2,000m above sea level
