Background Details

Ethiopia Guji 1 Natural Gerbicho Rogicha Grainpro 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. During the harvest, Girma works with the Gerbicho Rogicha association of 1500 small coffee producers that cultivate coffee from 5-acre plots located in Gerbicho Rogicha within the Bule Hora District of the Guji Zone, Oromia Region, Ethiopia. Coffee producers deliver their ripe cherries to the mill where it is carefully sorted, and then placed on raised drying beds in thin layers and dried for 18 to 21 days. Girma’s years of experience and focus on selection of only ripe cherries that are meticulously dried and milled in a vertically integrated operation all the way through the final export stage, resulting in an exceptionally clean and sweet cup profile.
