Grade 4 Grade 4 is considered a mid-range grade and still exhibits notable characteristics. Grade 4 coffee beans are smaller in size and have a varying level of defects, including under-ripe beans, known as quakers. While they may not exhibit the same level of complexity and flavor as the higher grades, they can still offer a satisfying taste experience with distinct Ethiopian coffee characteristics, including earth and fruit tones.

October – December
Ethiopia Guji 4 Natural is sourced from the Guji Coffee Export PLC, which is owned and operated by Girma Edema who has more than 20 years of experience exporting coffee from the Kercha district in the Oromia region of Ethiopia. Coffee producers deliver their ripe cherries to the Girma’ s coffee washing station where the cherries are sorted an immediately placed on raised beds and dried over a period of 15 to 20 days. The raised drying beds are carefully constructed to ensure proper air circulation and temperature control for an optimal drying process. Cherries are also turned regularly on the beds to prevent damage during the drying process. The cherries are stored in a local warehouse after the moisture is reduced to between 11.5 and 12 percent. Then the beans are transported to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, to be milled and bagged prior to export. Girma’s full control of the processing up to the final export stage, results in an exceptionally clean and sweet cup profile.
