Ethiopia – the birthplace of coffee
All Ethiopian Roasted Coffee Beans live up to their reputation as the birthplace of coffee and the 7th largest producer in the world, as well as Africa’s top coffee producer. It’s no small wonder then that you get such a sophisticated cup of coffee.
Produced by hand and managed by a cooperative
Here, the coffee is all prepared by hand. What you get from a small greyish-green bean is pure heaven. It’s made by a cooperative from Kelenso Mokansia up in the district of Bule Hora. There are just over 1500 members of this cooperative with a majority of men to women. They produce over 2,000 tons of coffee every year, so they’ve had plenty of time to hone their coffee-making skills.
Detailed processes that produce a delicious coffee
This is a washed process with the cherries pulped right away and the seeds fermented in water for several hours to remove any mucilage. This is a process that requires knowledge, skill, precision and tremendous attention to detail. They will then send the coffee through long troughs where it’s thoroughly washed so there’s no foreign matter remaining. They then leave the beans to dry on what’s known as a drying bed and turned every few hours so they all dry evenly. The coffee itself is grown on the beautifully lush green hillsides of Sidamo, hence the name, and the washed coffee produced is a result of the precise techniques used.
Great at any time of day
This coffee brings with it a fruity fragrance with some floral notes that are balanced with its body and acidity, you’ll also find that there’s a delicious hint of apricot in the aftertaste. This is a coffee that can be enjoyed alone or as part of a meal. It can be enjoyed simply for its taste or it can be savoured after a delicious meal. It really does Ethiopia proud as a stand out coffee with great taste and flavour, and full of character. It’s a coffee that’s perfect for the connoisseur or the beginner. All the hard work that goes into processing and perfecting this delicious coffee has paid off it’s a coffee with personality and character and all the right notes and flavours – well worth a try!

More about Ethiopian coffee beans product
With Ethiopia being the motherland of coffee, it’s fair to say they’ve got their coffee-making methods down to a fine art. The Yirgacheffe bean is picked by hand by dedicated workers and it is a washed coffee. The beans are washed after having their outer layers stripped to get rid of the skin and fruity pulp. They are then soaked for around 72hours in fermentation tanks. The floral flavours and high acidity are due to this wet processing method, which is less likely with the dry. Yirgacheffe, where the coffee is grown, is within the Sidamo region but is a distinctly different coffee to other coffees which come from this area. Again, it’s grown and prepared as part of a cooperative that is able to sell the coffee at a fair price. With high altitudes, a warm climate, and an abundance of sunlight with occasional rains, Ethiopia is able to produce a truly first-class coffee.
Diligent methods, great coffee
The diligence of the coffee-making process pays off with a beautiful cup of coffee with chocolate, bergamot and fruity notes. It has a big body and a classic acidic feel which all contributes to a really delicious cup of coffee. This is a light-medium roast with the distinctive citrusy notes having their moment. There’s a rich intensity where you can find jasmine, spices and those cupping notes with a hint of earl grey tea, culminating in a coffee that brings clarity and freshness to finish.
Savour the nuances of this most elegant of coffees
This is one of those coffees to be savoured and is every bit as nuanced and full of flavour as you’d expect. It’s complex and well balanced, with a sweetness that compliments the overall taste. This is not the coffee for you if you simply want a caffeine fix, it’s far too sophisticated for that. Ethiopians themselves have their own way of drinking coffee, with three rounds of coffee being the usual serving with lots of sugar added, salt even, but never milk. The rounds of coffee all have their individual names, the Abol (first), Tona (second) and the Baraka (third). And this ritual can often take place anything up to three times a day. Evidence, if any were needed, that if you’re drinking quality coffee, you can drink as much as you like in a day.
Drink it in the morning, afternoon or night
However, many times you drink your Ethiopian Roasted Coffee beans, whether it’s three cups or one, and it’s recommended that you have at least one cup a day, you will enjoy each mouthful of this delicious Ethiopian coffee. High recommended!
