We’re happy to report that this coffee has been certified as 100% organic by the Organic Food Federation, meaning its producers use a system of farm management and food production that combines best environmental practices.
The Guji Highland Coffee Plantation produces a coffee with lemony and spicy notes in the heart of the Dambi Uddo forest. Harvested within a rich agroforestry system, it is a forest coffee that is organically grown and harvested by hand. It is produced using ancient farming know-how, and its recognition is helping to protect what is a rare environment.
The forest is in the heart of the Guji appellation, but may also be linked to the type A Sidamo appellation. It is characterised by rich biodiversity comprising about fifteen tree species, some of which are becoming rare in Ethiopia.
The Dambi Uddo farm is divided into 4 plots. Its natural coffee comes from the plot in Gatama, located at an altitude of about 2,100 metres. It is named after a tree found in the Dambi Uddo forest that bears flowers famous for producing delicious white honey. The Gatama plot extends over 9 hectares.
