【From Barista】

It has a deep fruitiness reminiscent of blackcurrant that spreads out slowly, and the honey-like thickening that remains in the mouth after swallowing is very pleasant!

It is an elegant coffee that allows you to enjoy the cooked sweetness of grape or mixed berry jam together with the robustness that only dark roasting can provide.

About the beans, stickers and flavor illustrations that arrive





水分が11.5%になった豆は大切に保管され、そのままエチオピア首都のアディスアベバにあるNardos Coffeeの倉庫へ輸送され、輸出基準を満たすよう、さらに精製を行います。

Natural processing method involves a rigorous quality control process from the moment the beans are collected from farmers. The beans are then taken directly to raised beds, where they undergo a meticulous picking process that starts with green beans and progresses to yellow and black beans.

To ensure optimal moisture content, the beans are covered when they reach around 15-20% moisture content and are stirred four times a day to remove any unwanted cherries.

Once the beans reach 11.5% moisture content, they are carefully stored in our warehouse, where they await milling and transportation directly to Addis for further processing to meet export standards.



◉Washing Stationについて|Shakiso Coffee Washing Station


Shakiso is located in the Oromia Region in the Eastern part of the Guji district at an altitude of 1980m above sea level. Shakiso Coffee Washing Station is a new coffee farming region and the heirloom coffee trees are only about 10 years old. the coffee beans here are a little bit bigger than Dimtu, as the farms are located at a lower altitude. Shakiso is a rainforest region so most of the coffee trees are shade-grown coffee trees, with good rainfall, to production good for these trees. All coffee is processed and dried in a traditional way.












Nardos Coffee dates back to the 1960’s, when Biniyam’s great-grandfather started coffee production in Guji. Later on, his grandfather built a washing station there. That was the first ever privately-run washing station in the region. Then, in 1998, Biniyam’s father founded a coffee export company. In three generations, the family has pulled off this major undertaking, leaving an indelible mark on the history of Ethiopian coffee. 






Through our conversation with Biniyam, we were able to learn the secret behind the quality. “Small things matter, like building a washing station at an altitude of 2,000 meters or higher, fermenting and drying coffee on time, and letting harvested coffees cool before moving them into a warehouse to keep them from drying too much. Efforts like these, no matter how small, make a big difference in the quality of coffee.” There is no shortcut to improving the quality of coffee. In every step of the chain – from production, processing, roasting, and brewing – small efforts are crucial. And for coffee professionals, their day-to-day work is a daily reminder of this fact.







In 2018, Biniyam embarked on a new venture by establishing his company, Gujo Trading, triggered by his marriage and the birth of his child.

"At the moment, it's still a small and new company, but I have aspirations to expand and increase our export volumes in the future. However, my goal goes beyond just scaling up. What I aim for is to become a business that can assist the people who are currently helping me. I want to witness the growth of both our customers and employees as our company grows.

Specifically, I envision providing everything that rural residents need, such as clean drinking water and roads. If I can expand our export business, I can also contribute to addressing Ethiopia's chronic foreign currency shortage, which is a national issue. In essence, my ambition is to make a positive change in Ethiopia by ensuring the success of my business."
