Ethiopia Guji Natural Shakiso GrainPro is sourced from 700 family owned farms living  in the Shakiso woreda of the Guji Zone within the Oromia region, Ethiopia. 700 coffee farmers deliver ripe cherries to the Abyot Boru mill. Ripe cherries are carefully selected and immediately placed on raised beds carefully constructed to ensure proper air circulation and temperature control for an optimal drying process. Cherries are also turned regularly on the beds to prevent damage during the drying process. The cherries are stored in a local warehouse after the moisture is reduced to between 11.5 and 12 percent, and then transported to Addis Ababa where the coffee is milled and exported.
