About this Coffee:
Named after the tribe of the Oromia people, Ethiopia's Guji zone was created in 2002. Each zone in Ethiopia has it's own distinct flavour profile and Guji represents terroir lush with extravagant dark chocolate notes, jasmine-like flowers, and crisp, sweetly-tart acidity.
Uraga is in the Guji district, in the province of Sidamo, which lies in the mountainous zone of South Central Ethiopia. Nestled in the Oromia rain catchment area, the Sidamo region is ideally located for agricultural production, unlike other, harsher regions of the country. The high altitudes at which this coffee is grown give the bean a naturally high density and contribute to its unique flavour notes of spice, wine and chocolate while increasing the bright crisp lemon citrus acidity. Ripe cherries are delivered fresh-picked to the wetmill for careful sorting and pulping, before
fermentation for 36-48 hours, depending on the climactic conditions.
