The Guji Highland Coffee Plantation is a family business managed by Wadessa Yachisa. In 1995, at the age of 17, Wadessa was forced to leave secondary school to join the army and complete his military service. On his return in the late 1990s, the political situation was such that he could not resume his studies. The young man found himself unable to continue his education, despite wanting to do so.

Driven by a strong ambition, he managed to bounce back and quickly turned his hand to other projects. He began by working in one of the gold mines in the Guji area.

He then decided to invest his savings in coffee, considered a promising regional industry. In 1999 he created a first company with friends, which he headed for several years. Then, in 2010, he journeyed to the Guji appellation in Dambi Uddo. He went there for a religious ceremony, but on meeting and talking with local farmers decided to invest in its beautiful coffee forest.

 In 2012, Wadessa Yachisa created a new company, Guji Highland Coffee Plantation PLC, with other members of his family. They now have 150 hectares of land devoted to coffee production and also work with local farmers who supply them with cherries.

This coffee is harvested in the Dambi Uddo forest, in the Guji appellation. It is named after an endemic tree "Qararo" that can grow several tens of metres high and offers a shade ideal for optimum cherry ripening. This coffee is organically grown and harvested by hand in a rich forest, which gives it its unique characteristics.
