This coffee comes from the surroundings of the “Dambi Uddo” plantation (which is also the name of a huge tree in the wild forest of Shakiso, in the region of Guji). Many small producers grow coffee at an altitude slightly lower than the plantation. These producers are called “outgrowers” They don’t process their cherries but sell them to the DambiUddo plantation, where they are processed before being milled in Addis. The producers of this coffee are located at altitudes between 1700 and 1800m, with coffee bushes of variety 74110 and 74140 (Jimma Research Center).
