Like Yirgacheffe, coffees from the Guji area were previously categorised together with coffees from Sidamo which is actually a very wide geographical classification encompassing much of central and southern Ethiopia. However, Guji coffees are said to be quite distinct from either Yirgacheffe or Sidamo coffee. Located in the southern portion of Sidamo the people of Guji have a long tradition of coffee cultivation. They are called the Oromo people. Guji is one of the zones of the Oromia Region of Ethiopia and is named after a tribe of the Oromo people.
