Ethiopia is considered the cradle of coffee and famous for the fact that it was in the forest in the Kaffa region where Coffea Arabica grew wild. Nowadays, the country shows a typical “smallholder” structure.
Sidamo enjoys soil and climatic conditions-including altitude, rainfall, and temperature – that makes it perfect for the production of Arabica Coffee. Specialty-grade coffee from Sidamo is grown mainly in small villages (kebeles). Sidamo is well known for its production of “garden coffee”. The coffee is planted at low density, ranging from 1000 to 1800 trees per hectare, and is mostly fertilized with organic matter. All of the coffee produced under this system is agronomically organic – but most are not certified as such. About 95 % of the Sidamo coffee is fully washed. Fresh and clean cherries arrive at washing stations where they are pulped and allowed to ferment naturally. The fermented coffee is washed with clean running water, soaked in clean water, and then dried till it retains about 11.5 percent moisture.
ENJOY!!! Discover unique flavor & aroma. We know you will.

Never had Ethiopian coffee beans before so I thought I would try something exotic. I am glad I did, this was the smoothest coffee I ever had. I am not a coffee expert, but this sure beats out any store bought coffee I have had before.
