Ethiopia is thought to be the birthplace of coffee with wild growing Coffea Arabica being found in the forests of the Kaffa region. Ethiopia coffees are among the world's most varied and distinctive.
This type is grown in the Sidamo region south of the capital, Addis Ababa. It is the most southern and most productive province in the country. The region is well known for having ideal climate conditions for growing coffee. This is all due to high altitudes of between a 1600 - 1900 meters, ample rainfall, optimal temperature, and rich soil.
Washed Sidamos are typically high quality coffee with unique sweet lemon and floral flavours, and an ideal balance between acidity and body. Sometimes this type can be compared favourably with coffee from the Yirgacheffe region.
For Ethiopian coffees, the Grade 2 signifies that the coffee is washed. Also, the difference between grade 1 and 2 is defined by the number of visible defects in the prep. If a coffee receives a grade 1 classification, it has 0 - 3 defects; this is rare! Grade 2 coffees allow 4 - 12 defects. Typically the quality of washed coffees is more consistent than that of unwashed coffees.
Love this coffee, probably one of my favourite ones. I usually enjoy it in a latte or cappuccino made with oat milk. This isn’t as per the serving suggestion on the Redber website, but I like it anyway!! Give it a try!
