Where is it from?


Derived from Amharic language, Biftu Gudina means "ray of development." The cooperative was established in 2012 and is located in the Agaro - Goma woreda (district) within the Jimma zone. There are about 150 smallholders in total. Located near Jimma town, the co-op benefits from high altitude and rich fertile soils. The surrounding area is green and lush.

The coffee at Biftu Gudina is processed using the washed method. At the washing station, cherries are sorted by hand for unripe and over-ripe fruit prior to entering the hopper that feeds the Penagos eco-pulper. Afterwards, the beans are soaked in clean water in concrete tanks for 8 hours. Wastewater treatment relies on a natural form of filtration through a vetiver grass plot before it goes into the pits and finally the ground. The beans are then sun-dried for 10 to 14 days on raised African drying beds and carefully hand sorted again.

Biftu Gudina has a strong leadership and chairman who together with Technoserve (an NGO that supports farmers in setting up washing stations and new cooperative structures) established the cooperative. Initial funding came from Falcon Coffees. Since Biftu Gudina was established it has become famous in speciality coffee circles thanks to its incredibly complex and luscious flavour and consequently, it now commands prices that farmers could only have dreamt of in the past - as much as four times more.

In the cup, expect intense jasmine and magnolia florals, notes of apricot, lime and hops and a complex honey sweetness.

Simply put. A classic.

Love this!

Picked up a 250g bag at the Bristol coffee festival and have to say this is fantastic coffee. Fruity and acidic and the taste brings a smile to my face every time, just wished they had larger bags at the time, oh well I’lll just have to order up a bigger bag online.

Superb!!!

One of the best artisanal coffees I've ever had. Makes an incredibly flavourful yet refreshing brew. Deeply nuanced yet balanced. A 250g bag is far too small. Well done Django.
