Guji is one of the zones of the Oromia Region of Ethiopia. Guji is named after a tribe of the Oromo people. Guji is bordered on the south by Borena, on the west by the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples Region, on the north by the Ganale Dorya River which separates it from Bale and on the east by the Somali Region. The highest point in this zone is Mount Dara Tiniro.
The majority of producers are smallholders, which means that each family might only have a few trees, producing 10 to 15 bags of cherries a year. The natural mutation of indigenous varieties of Ethiopian coffee plants and the vast number of smallholders, contribute greatly to the complex aromas and taste of this coffee.
