About this coffee:
Our Hambela Guji comes from the Hambela Washing
Station in the Guji region of Ethiopia. Hambela
operates a coffee plantation and partners with more
than 1000 farmers to source coffee. They are
committed to working with the local farmers to
improve quality and productivity.
Hambela has been supplying coffee to the auction for
over 20 years, but was only established as a coffee
exporter in 2014. They own 3 washing stations: two in
Guracho village and one in Hambela District.
The Guji region is named for one of the tribes of the
Oromo and is one of the administrative zones of the
Oromia region. The zone was created in 2002 when the
uplands of Borena zone were split to create it.
The Guji region enjoys ideal coffee growing conditions.
Its volcanic soil is bursting with nutrients, creating
deep red and brown top-layer of soil. The regions' high
altitude, bi-modal rainfall pattern and dry weather
allow for the cherries to develop slowly.
