Guji Highland is a coffee plantation located in the Shakiso District of Ethiopia’s Guji Zone. In addition to producing its own coffees on 250 hectares of land, Guji Highland processes and exports coffee from nearby smallholder farmers who cultivate coffee on an additional 400 hectares of land, as is typical of centralized washing stations in Ethiopia.

Sustainable Harvest’s Hangadhi and Hiddi lots come from local smallholder farmers who have gained market access via this method.

About the producer

Guji Highland are experts in natural coffee processing, and the evidence is in the beautifully balanced yet striking cup profiles they produce. After ripe red cherries are delivered by the farmers, Guji Highland processing specialists place the coffee on raised beds three feet above the ground. As the cherries dry, they are hand-turned and sorted to ensure even drying and prevent mildew from growing. During the night, the cherries are covered to protect them from the elements and cold temperatures. It can take up to four weeks to complete this drying process and achieve the right level of humidity content before the coffee is ready for dry milling in Shakiso town and export.

As an organic operation, Guji and its partner farmers rely on the incredibly rich soils of the Guji region and shade of indigenous shade trees to cultivate their thriving coffee plants. Preserving the natural environment through their coffee production practices is an essential part of their operation.
