    Like Yirgacheffe, coffees from the Guji area were previously categorised together with coffees from Sidamo which is actually a very wide geographical classification encompassing much of central and southern Ethiopia. However, Guji coffees are said to be quite distinct from either Yirgacheffe or Sidamo coffee. Located in the southern portion of Sidamo the people of Guji have a long tradition of coffee cultivation. They are called the Oromo people. Guji is one of the zones of the Oromia Region of Ethiopia and is named after a tribe of the Oromo people. In Ethiopia’s Oromia region, Guji is a southern zone, snug up against Sidamo and Yirgacheffe, which are across the border in the SNNPR (the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples’ Region).

    Guji Coffee is shade grown in soil that’s rich in nutrients; leaves from the shade trees fall and become compost, and coffee pulp is returned to the farmers to be turned into compost. While the coffee is not certified organic, no chemical fertilizers are applied to the Guji coffee, making it what Sibu calls “organic by default.” We love this coffee as an Aeropress or pourover
