This beautiful coffee from the Hambela region of Guji in Ethiopia is an absolute knockout. 

The soils in the southern and western parts of the coffee-growing regions of Ethiopia are volcanic.  Volcanic soil is rich in nutrients and minerals which is perfect for growing coffee. 

The Guji region receives ample rainfall and is marked by steep mountainous terrain. Perfect conditions to support the vast array of coffee found here. Only recently have Guji coffees been distinguished from neighbouring Sidamo and Yirgacheffe producing areas. Due to their immense quality and unique profiles, they are quickly gaining international recognition. 

Grades in Ethiopia depend on visual inspection for defects and on cup quality. Grade 1 is considered the highest quality coffee. Grade 1 and 2 are considered specialty coffee, grade 3-9 are classified as commercial coffee.
