Guji Highland is a 250 hectare, family owned farm established in 2012 by Wodessa Yachisi.  It is situated in Oromia, near the town of Shakisso in the Guji Zone – roughly 530 km south of Addis.  Guji Highland Estate is nestled in what can only be described as a natural cloud forest.  The farm was planted in stages with new seedlings cultivated each year using seeds collected from indigenous mother trees.  The farm’s production is fully organic with the fertility of the topsoil provided by the rich organic matter that has naturally decomposed over decades.  The farm is currently producing only natural process coffees but it is in the plans to build a fully operational washing station and an eco-lodge for coffee tourists.

In addition to Guji Higland farmland, coffees are also sourced from smallholders in the local vicinity, making un an additional 400 hectares of prime coffee land.  Each of the smallholders is given expert advice, starting from seed selection from wild coffee to production and processing.

This coffee is Certified Organic.
