This dry-processed coffee from Ethiopia’s Guji region strikes your palate with an aroma full of sweet berries and chocolate undertones. As you sip, its heavy body greets your palate with strong flavors of strawberry and berries with a pleasant chocolate sweetness. Our Ethiopia Guji Shakiso coffee’s mild acidity allows these beautiful flavors to shine through in this truly special coffee.
Grown at some of the highest altitude coffee farms in the world, this coffee originates from the Kayon Mountain Coffee Farm. The farm lives in the shadows of evergreens that provide a multi-canopy structure where the deep red and brown top-layer of the volcanic soil bursts with nutrients. The high altitude, rainfall patterns, and relatively dry weather guide the cherries in developing to perfection.
Just like all naturally processed coffee, the cherries are dried on raised beds, dry milled, and finally prepared for export. The meticulous processing steps ensure the beans reach Grade 1 standards.
All of our coffee is now in sold in the most sustainable carbon-neutral packaging. We use the new, innovative designs from Dutch Coffee Pack, which is made entirely of plastic that is 100% recyclable. All of the carbon emitted in the production of these bags is compensated in full by reducing emissions elsewhere without compromising the freshness of the coffee inside.
