Since 2012, the Guduba wet mill has been operating in the Hambela Wamena region of Guji. Coffees from this area used to be marketed as Sidama coffee, a reflection of the larger region that had gained early fame for quality from coffee importers in Europe, but as coffee production becomes more precise, smaller and more unique lots more specific to their region have gained better recognition. Hambela Wamena borders the Gedeb region of Yirgacheffe, and coffees here are grown at extreme elevation. This particular washing station worked with 589 coffee farmers this year, most of whom has a 1-2 hectare coffee garden near their residence.
