Guji Green Coffee Beans
The Oromo people of the Guji region have their own origin story for the discovery of coffee; that’s how deeply woven the crop is within their culture. Instead of Kaldi the goatherder, the Oromo sky god Waaqa brought forth a new plant from the earth with his tears that were shed over the wrongful death of a loyal servant. From as early as the 10th century, coffee has been present in Oromo culture as a special plant that provided energy when the beans were mixed with fats and eaten on long journeys.

 

Centuries later, farmers in Guji still follow traditional growing methods that complement the incredibly fertile soil. Many landrace coffee varieties still thrive on Ethiopia’s coffee farms. Coffees are generally intercropped with maize, barley, wheat, beans, and other crops that provide food for the family.
