Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee: it is in the forests of the Kaffa region that Coffea Arabica grew wild. Coffee is "Bun" or "Buna" in Ethiopia. We consider Ethiopian coffees to be some of the best in the world, and extreme genetic diversity of the coffee shrub is certainly part of the reason why. Most of the coffee is either wet-processed which results in a vividly bright cup, with fruit and floral notes, or dry-processed with the fruit skin intact. Coffee history is extensive any regions, grades and characteristics, Ethiopians celebrate with a traditional coffee ceremony.

Sidamo, bordering Kenya, is the most southern and most productive province. Coffee is cultivated at an altitude of 1500 m or higher. The coffee is processed by the washed or the sundried (natural) method. Especially the naturals - if the process is well monitored - are the absolute top of the line in the area of specialty coffee. The flavours are the tastes of fully ripened fruit, with lots of citrus, lime and bergamot.

Harrar’s top coffees is their flavour, reminiscent of black currants. You need a lot of determination in your search, as these top-end coffees are usually hidden among other, less interesting ‘lots’. Good quality Harrars can only be found at higher altitudes: 1200 m or higher.

Limu is the Mountain King among East-African coffees, growing at altitudes between 1100 and 1900 m. Limus are always washed and possess lower acidity than Sidamo and Yirgacheffe has citrus and dark chocolate flavours.

Yirgacheffe, this small area has become much loved in the world of specialty coffee. It is surrounded by the Sidamo region. The usually washed coffees are sweet, with a clear freshness. Unwashed Yirgacheffes, meaning that the beans are still in the berry during drying, taste like baskets full of very mature fruits, with overtones of chocolate.

Coffees from Ethiopia can be named for the administrative kebele, woreda, zone, or region they grow in, as well as the coffee area they correspond to. The majority of Ethiopian smallholder farmers sell their cherries either to the local cooperative — itself part of a larger cooperative union that handles exporting — or to a private washing station.
