We Taste: cherry, plum, nectarine, medium body, medium [good, yummy fruity] spicy acidity. Overall the dark berry notes blend together to remind us of blackberries!
Naturals are sun dried inside the cherry fruit so some of the fruit's sweetness gets transferred into the seeds [coffee beans]. Naturals also change the center line in the bean to the same color as the roasted bean, so it is all dark instead of having a white "stripe" down the center.
Ethiopia is considered as 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 make 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 is not certified as such.
ENJOY!!! Discover amazing flavor & aroma. We know you will.
