      Ethiopia is the primary center of origin of the Arabica coffee plant. Coffea Arabica has been growing wild in the forests of the Southwestern Highlands of Kaffa and Buno districts of Ethiopia for thousands of years. As legend has it, coffee was discovered in Ethiopia in the 9th century by a goat-herder named Kaldi. He noticed that his goats became hyper after eating the cherries from the coffee tree, so he tried it himself. A monk approached Kaldi after he consumed the cherries and took some to his monastery. The monk roasted and brewed the coffee to share with other monks. As a result, they were able to stay awake during long nights of prayer. Since then, coffee has been widely accepted as a stimulant drink.

      Ethiopia has over 70 ethnic groups that speak over 200 languages. As a result, coffee is referred to as Bunna (Amharic), Bun (Tigrigna), Buna (Oromifa), Bono (Kefficho), and Kawa (Guragigna). Some argue that most names for coffee are derived from the names of the districts Kafa and Buno. The French and Spanish call it Cafe, the Italians call it Caffe, the Germans call it Kaffee, the Finnish call it Kahvi, the Dutch call it Koffie, and the Greek call it Kafes. All are phonetic approximations of the Ethiopian word.

      The washed Yirgacheffe is one of the best highland-grown coffees. It has fine acidity, body, and flavour. Many people are attracted to its delicate, floral, and tea-like characteristics.

      Fantastic coffee

      My son bought me a selection of 12 bags of coffee beans for Christmas and I had a great time tasting them and choosing favourites. I narrowed it down to 4 and recently bought 2 bigger bags of 2 of them. I love the idea of being able to try different coffees I’ve never even heard of. The service is fantastic, they roast the coffee (to your preference) when you order and post next day so it’s delivered just 2 days after ordering!
