Biftu Gudina cooperative is located in Agaro town, South-Western Ethiopia. Biftu Gudina got their start with the help of a non-government organization that not only coordinated agronomists and managers for each of the coops they work with, but also had a business adviser assigned that helped the cooperative manage their debt, re-invest in quality improvements at the mill, and verifies distribution of income to all members. They are now under their own management, and the coffee is sold through a Union. These Unions provide agronomical support to the coops, and also have export licenses, which up until this year, has afforded them access to the global market without having to go through the Ethiopia Commodities Exchange. Biftu Gudina sits at nearly 2000 meters above sea level, a convenient delivery site for the surrounding highland farmers who's coffee is planted between 1800 and 2100 meters above sea level. The coffee is depulped and then fermented for a full 36 hours in washing channels, then moved to soak in clean water, before being laid to dry on raised drying beds.

Biftu Gudina has all the markers of a lovely Western Ethiopia coffee. Stone fruit flavors are a central component in the cup, expect canned peaches or natural dried apricots.There's a "root" like flavor too, with the herbal character of sarsaparilla and cola sodas. Cupping at just shy of 90 this is an awesome drip coffee whether iced or hot and also makes for a mean single origin espresso
