ETHIOPIA GUJI GR1 SERE SABA NATURAL
Hill Tree Roastery LLC
Tropical fruit, citrus, tart berries, and buttery were among the taste descriptors mentioned while sipping this gem. The cup outshines the rest and shows no signs of age on the table whatsoever. Sere Saba is incredibly complex, clean, sweet, and has legs to stand all on its own as a single origin offering. However, it would play perfectly as a bright natural component to a spring/summer blend. Buy this coffee and let it wow everyone who drinks, because it 100% will, over and over again.
Our Guji Sere Saba Natural comes from Gemechu Chachu, Tesfaye Jarso, Ayele Shalo, Alemu Dera, Alemu Gude, Kifle Wako, Mitiku Ware, Digafe Gelgalo, Ayele Kube, Abreham Asefa, and Adola Sefaye and was processed by Sere Saba mill. Sere Saba has established in 1996 in Oromiya regional state Guji zone Kercha Woreda and specializes in the processing of washed and unwashed specialty coffees.
After the coffee was collected from the growers, it was laid on raised beds then carefully handpicked for unripe and overripe cherries. The coffee was then naturally dried.
Sere Saba works with more than 200 growers and employs 328 employees on a temporary basis. Sere Saba is fully committed to conserving the environment through programs of reforestation, preservation of water sources, and the natural ecosystem.
Like Yirgacheffe, coffees from the Guji area were previously categorized together with coffees from Sidamo which is actually a very wide geographical classification encompassing much of central and southern Ethiopia. However, Guji coffees are said to be quite distinct from either Yirgacheffe or Sidamo coffee. Located in the southern portion of Sidamo, the people of Guji have a long tradition of coffee cultivation. They are called the Oromo people. Guji is one of the zones of the Oromia Region of Ethiopia and is named after a tribe of the Oromo people.
