The Farm Story

Nestled in the heart of Guji, the Benti Nenka Washing Station collaborates with 500 farmers across a 6,000-hectare expanse in the Hambela Wamena woreda, situated approximately 550 km south of Addis Ababa. With an average farm size of three hectares, the region boasts heirloom coffee varieties, including wild varietals from the nearby Harenna forest. Operating at altitudes of 1900 to 2300 meters above sea level, farmers handpick cherries from trees surrounding their homes, emphasizing vertical integration. The Guji area, marked by steep terrain and abundant rainfall, provides ideal conditions for coffee cultivation. Distinguished from neighboring Sidamo and Yirgachefe, Guji coffee beans are gaining global acclaim for their exceptional quality and unique profiles. Despite the traditional farming methods in Guji, where coffee plants are intercropped with other food crops for maximum land use, the region's farms are primarily traditional and organic. Cherries are selectively hand-picked by landowners and their families, contributing to the distinctive character of Guji coffee, celebrated worldwide for its quality and traditional, organic cultivation practices.
