This coffee is sourced from the Guji Coffee Export PLC, which is owned and operated by Girma Edema who has more than 20 years of experience. Coffee producers deliver their ripe cherries to Girma’s washing station where the cherries are sorted and 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. Girma’s control of processing, from drying up to the final export stage, preserves the coffee from damage and results in an exceptionally clean and sweet cup profile.
