The cup character of Ethiopian coffee is nearly impossible to reproduce anywhere else in the world. Washed Ethiopian coffees sparkle with an array of citrus and tropical fruit flavors, and floral fragrances and aromas.
Ethiopia is universally recognized as the birthplace of coffee, and produces some of the most complex and exciting coffees in the world. Coffee was first cultivated in Ethiopia in the 1500’s. In the nearly 500 years since, growing methods have remained largely unchanged. The vast majority of Ethiopia’s coffee production comes from small-holder farmers, each producing an average of 300kg (5 bags) per year. The coffee from these small producers comes from one of three production methods: forest grown (wild coffee grown under full cover of forest trees), semi-forest (farmers thin trees and slash weeds once a year to facilitate harvesting), and garden (planted in low densities, fertilized with organic material and inter-cropped). Private and government owned plantations utilizing more modern farming techniques are responsible for the rest of the country’s production.
