Ethiopia Dry Process Guji Anasora

Ethiopia Dry Process Guji Anasora


Anasora is the name of the Woreda where this coffee comes from, and also the name of the wet mill site where the coffee is processed. Regionally, it's in the Guji Zone, not far from Yirga Cheffe. This private wet mill is one of a few operated by Mr. Edema, who has more than two decades of experience managing coffee processing operations in Guji; it has a good source of water from the nearby river which hugs the area and provides clean water for processing coffee. Mr. Edema works with 300+ small holders in the region, buying, processing, and exporting their coffee. Anasora sits at just under 2000 meters above sea level, and many of the farms are much higher than this which is about as high as we see coffee grown anywhere. This is a dry processed coffee, and hand sorted to grade 1 standards, and the evenness in roasted coffee is a testament to this extra hand labor and care.

Rustic sweetness and dried berry tones swirl in the fragrant ground coffee. The cup offers a heady mix of dehydrated blueberry and blackberry fruit leather, along with woody hints, and a dark balsamic note in the finish.

This coffee is part of the 'Farm Gate' program from our friends at The Coffee Shrub, which means they have negotiated directly with the farmer, and guarantee prices that are at least 50%, and often more than 100%, over fair trade.
