Ethiopia - Gutu Birre - Natural
Gutu Birre was born into a coffee farming family and grew up helping his father on the family farm. In accordance with the tradition of Gedeo, when Gutu got married in 1960 he was given a total of one hectare of land from his family. In his long years of coffee farming journey, he has invested in quality improvement, acquisition of more lands and infrastructure. Understanding the economic importance of coffee farming—since it was the only means of income for his family—Gutu decided to expand the size of his coffee farm. Currently he produces coffee from a total of 3.8 hectares of land located in the village of Tulise in Yirgacheffe county of Gedeo Zone, Ethiopia.
These micro lots are produced from the very well-known Kurume local landrace coffee variety and two other improved coffee varieties namely 74110 & 74112 developed by coffee breeders at Jimma Agricultural Research Center (JARC).
