Ethiopia is one of the world’s most fascinating coffee origins. Not only are its coffees bursting with flavor, but the country is generally considered coffee’s birthplace. There are indications that coffee had appeared earlier in Sudan, as well as grown as a crop in Yemen, however Ethiopia champions the distinction of being the place where people first consumed coffee. Much of this early activity dates back to the 1600s. So, it goes without saying that Ethiopia has a long, rich coffee history, which explains how the drink is so deeply embedded in the country’s culture. It’s as common to find someone home roasting green beans in a pan over coals, as it is to witness Ethiopians drinking coffee at all hours of the day and night.
CLEAN & COMPLEX
In keeping with our commitment to provide you with high quality and interesting specialty grade products, we proudly introduce our Ethiopia Sidamo G1. At an altitude of 4,600-7,200ft, the Sidamo region grows some of the highest Ethiopian coffee. The area is also known for producing distinctive washed and naturally processed coffees that are bright, fruity and extremely aromatic. Our portable coffee Sidamo G1 beans are washed, so they tend to have a slightly more complex flavor profile, yet they provide a cleanliness that is void of harshness and astringency.
We used a light roast in order to bring out the bean’s natural intrinsic flavors. Look for bright acidity forward with pleasant floral and grapefruit notes that lead to delightful vanilla and caramel as your cup cools. For best results, we recommend brewing with hot water around 90-92°C / 194-197°F.
