At some of Ethiopia’s most extreme altitudes lies Guji’s Uraga region, a dense, mountainous forest that spans almost a thousand miles. Within this immense forest lies an array of distinct subregions, where some of the most extraordinary and sought-after coffees we see anywhere in the world come from. Uraga coffees are profoundly nuanced with a piquant florality and a bright, complex acidity like lime and bergamot backed by stone fruit sweetness like ripe peach. GoGo Guji is a stunning example of Uragan coffees with hallmark notes of bergamot florality, lime citric acidity, a sparkling acidity like champagne, and the sweetness of concord grapes and peaches and cream.
This coffee is brought to us thanks to the sourcing partnership between Dagne Chomen of Welichu Wachu and Red Fox Coffee. Dagne opened his central washing station Welichu Wachu collecting coffee from all over Uraga’s vast forests. Welichu Wachu, established October 2017, employs over 750 people at three processing sites during peak season and services thousands of farmers. Coffee is grown in and around Ugo Begne forest and classified as forest, semi-forest or garden grown. The variety grown is Ethiopian Landraces or identified as Kudum. It underwent a washed process and was dried on raised beds for 8-12 days after fermenting for 72 hours.
