Derived from Amharic language, Biftu Gudina means "ray of development." The cooperative was established in 2012, and is located in the Agaro - Goma woreda (district) within the Jimma zone. There are about 150 smallholders in total. The co-op benefits from high altitude and rich fertile soils, and the surrounding area is green and lush.
Biftu Gudina has a strong leadership team who together with Technoserve (an NGO that supports farmers in setting up washing stations and new cooperative structures) established the cooperative. Initial funding came from Falcon Coffees. Since Biftu Gudina was established it has become famous in specialty coffee circles thanks to its incredibly complex and luscious flavours, alongside its Organic accreditation. In the cup, expect intense jasmine and magnolia florals, notes of Gooseberry, lime and peach and a complex honey sweetness. Simply put; A classic.
