Coffee cultivation in Guji is a relatively new phenomenon compared to other regions of Ethiopia. The young coffee plants grow in mineral-rich volcanic soils, a conducive environment for Arabica coffee strains.
The Dambi Udo farm grows coffee under the canopy of natural forests. Familiy-owned, the farm does not only process its own cherries but also purchases cherries from the surrounding coffee farmers. Very involved in their community, they offer training to the surounding coffee farmers, participate in building school, renovating road infrastructure or bringing water to the remote villages.
