This Fully washed coffee from Guji is produced by Tima farmer group. The group is composed of producers living and farming in Tima, a sub-kebele located in Guji’s Shakiso district. They cultivate coffee at the lofty altitudes of 2,000 to 2,150 meters above sea level. The warm days and cool nights create the ideal environment for cultivating dense, sweet cherry.

Farmers cultivate coffee under shade from indigenous trees. The varieties selected are a combination of local landraces and varieties from JARC (Jimma Agricultural Research Center) that are resistant to coffee berry disease (CDB).

Farming methods in Guji remain largely traditional. Guji farmers typically intercrop their coffee plants with other food crops. This method is common among smallholders because it maximizes land use and provides food for their families. In addition to remaining traditionally intercropped, most farm work is done manually and very few tasks are mechanized, even during processing.
