A lot of times, when it comes to a fruity coffee, you almost inherently lose some of the body and texture. This Guji from BKG Coffee Roasters is a rare single origin that serves a peach bubble gum punch, yet it’s creamy and has a comforting texture at the same time. I might even venture so far to say I tastes a hint of vanilla, too! Especially recommended for anyone who appreciates a balanced coffee and is looking to venture out with some fruity combo.

Notes from the roaster: This organic Guji natural processed lot was sourced from 3 farms (collectively 75 acres) around the community of Gatame Muka in the coveted Shakiso district. The farmers (Jilo Barko, Jarso Muda, Teklu Miju), deliver ripe cherries to the station in Shakiso, which is owned and operated by Guji Highland Coffee Plantation. Ripe cherries are carefully sorted and then placed on raised drying beds in thin layers to dry for 15 to 20 days and turned regularly to avoid over-fermentation and mold. Raised beds are carefully constructed to ensure proper air circulation and temperature control, for optimal drying. Once the cherries are gently dried to 11 percent moisture, they are transported to the Guji Highland Coffee Plantation dry-mill where the same focus on sorting and quality control is executed through to the final export stage.
Tasting notes: floral, watermelon, apricot
