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.
This was actually for someone who is hard to please regarding coffee and was a success. Personally speaking nicest coffee I have ever tasted.
This batch is very sweet (for coffee) and not really to my taste. Smooth though.
It was very disappointing. This is normally my all time favourite coffee bean but, in this case there was next to no flavour. Unless it will be sold in a dark roast I will no longer buy them. Sorry!
2nd favourite from Redber after the more renowned Ethopian, but 90% as goood!
This coffee is fantastic. I don’t like bitter coffee and this is far from that! It’s light, bright, citrus notes, no bitter aftertaste - an amazing coffee all round.
