This Ethiopian Guji Coffee is exciting from the first sip to last. Enjoy black to fully appreciate this single  origin coffee, but it is also great as a double shot of espresso or as a cafetière or  filter coffee.

It demonstrates a unique texture, floral notes of Jasmine and Cherry Blossom, with a hint of roasted almonds, all topped off with an excellent floral and clean finish.

More about this coffee...

No3 is a washed coffee, washed coffees are prized for their clarity and vibrant notes.

What we love about washed coffees is their pure intrinsic flavours from the bean. This means that washed processing is best suited to coffees with a great taste profile. Washed processing results in clean acidity, lively, fruity characteristic’s that so many specialty coffee lovers find delightful.

Our beans are from the Guji zone in Ethiopia, one of the most exciting coffee regions in the world. Despite its proximity to neighbouring regions Sidamo and Yirgacheffe, the flavour profiles are distinct, giving complex, yet balanced tastes. Coffee farming also has ancient roots within the culture of the region. Our beans are of the native heirloom varietal, the word “heirloom” is defined as “a valuable object that has belonged to a family for several generations”.

The Shakisso Farm can be found in the Guji zone, the southern part of Oromia, one of Ethiopia’s largest regions. The farm was started by father of seven, Haile Gebre and began producing organic coffees in 2001.

Shakisso Farm spreads out over 640 hectares and has its own nursery sites to grow coffee seedlings. During harvest, there are more than 300 coffee pickers harvesting coffee and about 150 of them supply coffee individually to the wet mill

The Oromo people of Guji consider their region as the ancestral cradle of Oromo culture. The ceremonies, rituals, and lore that come forth of the Gada age-group system, are still subsequently and widely practiced among Guji’s inhabitants. Besides the system, coffee farming has ancient roots within the Guji culture – the two are inseparable.
