The Guji region of southern Ethiopia is a remote place, beautifully forested and in many ways – an untouched area of the country. With lots of young trees, fertile soils and high altitudes, the coffees from this region have become very popular in the last few years - known for their balanced acidity and delicious tropical notes!
The Benti Nenka Washing Station is located in the Heart of Guji with a total of 600 farmers delivering cherries from surrounding areas. All coffee here is picked by hand and the average farm size is 2-3 hectares. With large areas of untouched forest, the land here is incredibly fertile. There is little need for fertiliser and the majority of coffee is organic but not certified.
We’ve found the coffees from this region to be incredibly versatile. This has been roasted for all types of filter brewing, and you can expect a sweet and complex cup with notes of papaya, orange and bergamot
