'There aren't many things that get Team Foundry as excited as a new coffee from the Guji region of Ethiopia'. This is how we started our description of our insanely popular Dambi Udo from last year. This coffee is from the same washing station and it's amazing, but quite different!
In the cup, you can expect some really intriguing flavour. We get a wonderful ripe blueberry note, followed by a hint of liquorice and a finish that reminds us of black tea. So, this isn't your classic natural Guji fruit bomb but it is supremely classy, intriguing and thoroughly moreish. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do, it's sheer class.
Origin: Daanissa, Guji. Processed at Dambi Udo
Varietals: Gibirinna and Serto.

Want to know more about this coffee? Read on......
Daannisa is the name of a sub kebele (Hamlet) where the this group of 37 farmers are located. Average farm size of each member is 3.35 hectares. The coffee grows under a canopy of natural forest, much like most of Guji Coffees in the area.
The fertile red land is made of Clay and Loam.
All of these farmers are trained in agronomy and post-harvest practices by the "King of Guji", Ture Waji. What's unique about how these drying stations are managed are the drying beds themselves: each day lot is tracked with a tag for each bed, listing the specific delivery and the start date of drying and relative Moisture Content Readings for each day.
