Coffee is an inseparable part of the Guji, and the wider Oromo, culture. Some historians believe the Oromo people used coffee as early as the 10th century AD, although it wasn’t used as a drink then. In those times, coffee beans were mixed with edible fat to create small balls that people chewed on to ward off tiredness. It was an ideal snack to carry on long and tiring journeys.
So what does a natural Guji coffee taste like? It’s a citrus fruit flavor bomb with strong notes of lemon, a bright citric acidity, and a good body and mouthfeel.
