About - This coffee grows in the Oromia region, one of Ethiopia’s largest regions. The farm is located in the Guji zone, the southern part of Oromia that borders on the Sidama and Gedeo zones. The farm started to produce organic coffees in 2001 and works closely together with medium-sized outgrowers who are specialized in this highland forest coffee. The enterprise has 640 hectares with its own nursery sites to grow coffee seedlings. There are currently twelve permanent qualified members of staff with more than ten years practical experience in coffee production, processing, clearing and marketing. During harvest, they have more than 300 coffee pickers harvesting coffee. About 150 of them supply coffee individually to the wet mill. There are many gold mines in the area, so the coffee fields are literally full of holes where people have been digging for gold. This makes walking between the coffee trees challenging.
