About this coffee :

The Sidamo region of Ethiopia is within the Yirgacheffe region, so the taste profiles tend to be similar, especially in the washed coffees. But this is a natural (dry-processed) Sidamo that tends to have red berry flavours and sometimes lemon, milk chocolate, or tea-like characteristics.

This one was grown near the village of Aleta Wendo just south of Sidamo, and it is a real prize. No earthiness or astringency, but a lot of milk chocolate and a lot of fruit (namely strawberry).

You’ll find an interesting coffee with a medium body, a sweet floral beginning, classic berries fruitiness with honeysuckle sweetness, medium acidity, and a clean lingering finish. Great coffee that suit’s our hot weather, sweet enough that you can drink it hot or iced, clean aftertaste, well processed, well sorted -- we are really happy with this find.
