About this coffee
These ethically-sourced green coffee beans from Arfasa Trading originate from the Shakiso district of Guji, meticulously produced and harvested by skilled coffee farmers.
The Guji region has a rich history of coffee cultivation, being one of the zones within the Oromia region, named after the Oromo people. In Oromo tradition, the color green symbolizes fertility, a representation of their supreme God Waqa's manifestation. Legend has it that a coffee plant emerged from the soil watered by Waqa's tears, making coffee a profoundly meaningful part of Oromo culture. Many farmers in the region make a living producing this precious crop.
Arfasa Trading follows a Sustainable Harvest approach, prioritizing farm-level economic stability and quality traceability. From farmer to consumer, sustainable agriculture and social responsibility are at the forefront, ensuring that every cup of coffee meets the highest ethical standards.
At the heart of Arfasa's mission lies their training center and support for community-based organizations, focused on two key objectives: enhancing coffee quality and improving the livelihoods of all farmers involved. Through this commitment, they continue to uphold their dedication to ethical practices and exceptional coffee.

Guji is quite distinct from the Sidamo coffees. Its cup offers exquisite floral and tea notes, with hints of rose and creamy texture, leaving a lingering finish. A must try for coffee connoisseurs.
