Moyee Presents our latest microlot Guji - Limited Time Only
The Guji region of Sidamo, along the Mora Mora River in southern Ethiopia, produces “forest coffee”, or coffee trees that grow wild. The region also has numerous small coffee farms that pool their coffee in a co-op for milling and export. Guji coffee is heirloom. What that means to us is that it is not a modern cultivar, but a traditional coffee that is unchanged from the very earliest coffees grown in this area. That alone would make us pretty excited about trying it.
Guji, Ethiopia is back on our limited menu (and we are very happy with that).This old acquaintance takes you on a journey to colorful Dambi Uddo in Ethiopia.Filled with tropical sweetness and ample complexity;this is the perfect cup to start the summer.

Farm - Dambi Uddo
This coffee grows in the famous and renowned Guji region of Sidamo, freshwater flows in this mountain range from the Mora Mora River in southern Ethiopia.The Guji is also called 'wild coffee', because it grows naturally in the forest among the mango, banana, papaya, and avocado plants. Giving the coffee grown here its natural fruity flavour.
The coffee grows at a high altitude of 2200 meters!That brings extra flavors and complexity.In addition, this coffee with pulp and all left to dry naturally. The drying process enhances many of the fruit's natural sugars in the bean, making them deliciously sweet. It's like tasting ripe fruit.
Roaster - Jose Mollura
The Guji is selected and roasted by our very own head roaster José Mollura. After more than 15 years in the coffee world, José's coffee knowledge is plentiful, from crop to cup.
José is only 1 of 3,500 Q-graders worldwide. A Q-grader is like a sommelier for wine or a Cicerones for beer.

Moyee Coffee Impact Mission
Currently, 90% of the proceeds of the total coffee production disappear into the pockets of a number of large multinationals, which we call the 'Big Coffee'. This means that the coffee farmers are left with only 10% of the value. Value where nothing has been 'added' - only 2% is actual profit! We may be entrepreneurs, but this imbalance cannot be justified in any way.
By applying FairChain principles we leave 300% more money in the coffee-producing country. We also pay our farmers a 20% FairChain premium with the aim of growing towards a living income.
