Ethiopia Sidamo South 250G
Fresh fruit aromas
Ethiopia Sidamo coffee beans, our favorite specialty coffee.
Ethiopian cafes have always won our hearts. Perhaps this is due to the fact that it is the birthplace of coffee? This is the country where the whole history of coffee began. In the heart of Sidamo a fruit tree grows in the highlands of Ethiopia. The coffee is so delicious that it offers exceptional fruit notes, thus varying with the beautiful aromas of tea and peach. Thanks to the washed treatment, the coffee is noted as very light with floral notes during tasting. The main aromas deciphered in this coffee are floral, bergamot and chocolate. The intense and complex acidity offers a soft and pleasant finality. It is in the south of the country that several small producers meet, in the heart of Sidamo, to bring their bags of green coffee. The producers are divided in the region between 1,750 and 2,200 meters above sea level on flat land in the heart of the Ethiopian mountains. The soil is a "nitisol" type, which means that it is weakly active and highly structured. The temperature and climatic conditions vary between 10 and 32 ° C, which allows the coffee to develop in a complex way.
