Guji is one of the zones of the Oromia Region of Ethiopia and is named after a tribe of the Oromo people. Created in 2002, 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.
Coffees from the Guji area were previously categorized together with coffees from Sidamo (a very wide geographical classification encompassing much of central-south Ethiopia). However Guji coffees are quite distinct from either Yirgacheffe or Sidamo coffees. Often, a Guji coffee has distinct tropical fruit characteristics and and thicker mouthfeel compared to ones produced in other famous coffee regions in Ethiopia.
