If you drive into the highlands of the Guij and Sidama zones you are entering the wild growth of the heirloom coffee trees which flourish in the incredibly fertile soils.
The dark red earth just seemed ready to receive and things grew strong and healthy. Many people think these heirloom varieties are the building blocks for this amazing coffee.
Combined with the altitude, this region really is a haven for coffee growing. So it shouldn’t surprise that the name Yirgacheffe is so famous, as this particular part of the world has some of the healthiest and most naturally fertile growing conditions I’ve ever seen.
This is a brilliant example of a Natural/Dry processed coffee from Mormora Coffee Plantation located in the Guji Zone of the Oromia Region of Sidamo.
