The district of Gedeb takes up the south-eastern corner of Ethiopia’s Gedeo Zone - a narrow section of plateau dense with savvy farmers whose coffee is known as “Yirgacheffe”, after the zone’s most famous district. Gedeb, however, is a terroir, history, and community all its own that merits unique designation in our eyes.
Coffees from this community, much closer to Guji than the rest of Yirgacheffe, are often the most explosive cup profiles we see from anywhere in Ethiopia. Naturals tend to have perfume-like volatiles and fully washed lots are often sparklingly clean and fruit candy-like in structure. The communities surrounding Gedeb reach some of the highest growing elevations for coffee in the world and are a truly enchanting part of the long drive into Guji.

The natural process begins with the arrival of red cherries by farmers to the washing station. Once red cherries are delivered, they are carefully selected and placed in a tank to remove floaters before going directly on raised African beds to dry for approximately 21 days.
