Oromia Coee Farmers’ Cooperative Union (OCFCU) is a tribally based co-operative union that was established in 1999, covering all the areas where the Oromo people live. This includes many of the best-known coee growing districts in Ethiopia. Guji is a relatively new nomenclature; the government has recently allowed farmers in the east of the Sidamo growing region to call their coee by their own tribal label - this coee is grown by members of the Guji-Oromi subtribe.
The Guji-2 is a fully washed coee, sold by the farmers as cherry to central washing stations, where it is pulped, fermented and washed before being sundried on raised beds. This is a sweet and juicy Ethiopian coee; it is very smooth with apricot tart and buttery stonefruit clean body.
Like most coees from Ethiopia, many different traditional varieties are grown between 1700
and 1900 metres in altitude.
