This coffee is a classic example of a natural process Guji. The Deri Kidame lot is grown in the Guji Zone, located in Southern Ethiopia. The lot is made up of contributions from many procucers that own small farms in the area. Guji is one of the most well-known coffee growing regions in the world and is located adjacent to Yirgacheffe and Sidama. This lot of coffee was grown under native shade trees at a very high elevation. Coffee grown in these conditions allows for slower maturation of the cherries which in turn gives them more time to develop sugars and acids. To process this coffee, the cherries were sent to the Deri Kidame washing station where they sort by density. Afterwards, the lot was dried on raised beds with the cherries intact for approximately 18 days.

This coffee is named after the Deri Kidame kebele (town), which is the washing station where this coffee was processed.
