ABOUT THE REGION

Our Hambela Guji comes from the Hambela Washing Station in the Guji region of Ethiopia. Hambela operates a coffee plantation and partners with more than 1000 farmers to source coffee. They are committed to working with the local farmers to improve quality and productivity.

Hambela has been supplying coffee to the auction for over 20 years, but was only established as a coffee exporter in 2014. They own 3 washing stations: two in Guracho village and one in Hambela District.

The Guji region is named for one of the tribes of the Oromo and is one of the administrative zones of the Oromia region. The zone was created in 2002 when the uplands of Borena zone were split to create it. The Guji region enjoys ideal coffee growing conditions. Its volcanic soil is bursting with nutrients, creating deep red and brown top-layer of soil. The regions' high altitude, bi-modal rainfall pattern and dry weather allow for the cherries to develop slowly.
