Coffees from the Sidamo region have a very special character and unique cup profile that justify considering them as some of the best coffees in the world. Similar in many ways to the flavor of Yirgacheffe, Ethiopian Sidamo is known for its floral and citrus notes.
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. This means that a high number of farmers with a usually small production yield carry together their cherries and bring them to central washing stations rather than processing their coffee with own machinery. At the washing stations the beans are carefully sorted before being processed.
