Mormora is a 200 hectare farm near the town of Shakiso, located in the Gujii Zone of the Oromia Region in the Sidamo Province. Coffee has been growing wild in these areas for centuries; Ethiopia being considered the birthplace of Arabica coffee and the only producing country where coffee is indigenous.

The farm is managed by the same owners as Guji Highland, though Mormora is an older plantation and sits at a slightly lower altitude - ranging from between 1850 and 2100 masl. Coffee is grown organically on the Mormora farm, in beautiful, wild forest conditions, where the soil is fertile and the trees benefit from a mixture of natural shade plants. The farm is also Organic certified (though this particular lot is not), and the land is managed in sections, with the trees undergoing 25 year cycles before being stumped to rejuvenate.

Ripe cherries are selectively hand-picked during harvest season which generally happens from November through to February. Coffee is delivered to the Shakiso washing station where it is sorted and dried on African beds.
