The Sidamo region enjoys soil and climatic conditions perfect for the production of speciality grade coffee. It is grown mainly in small villages (kebeles). Sidamo is well known for its production of “garden coffee”. The coffee is planted at low density, ranging from 1000 to 1800 trees per hectare and is mostly fertilized with organic matter. All of the coffee produced under this system is agronomically organic – but most is not certified as such. Fresh and clean cherries arrive at washing stations where they are pulped and allowed to ferment naturally. The fermented coffee is washed with clean running water, soaked in clean water and then dried.
While we roast this coffee to a lighter degree than most of our other offerings, many would still consider this a medium roast.
