Recommended Brewing Methods
With lemon and floral notes, Sidamo stands out with its strength and boldness, providing a clean, easy to drink brew. With a wonderful aromatic finish and hints of blueberry, this unique coffee is a famed single origin for good reason. The high elevation of Ethiopia provides the optimum conditions for arabica to slowly mature, resulting in sweet, complex flavour. Nutrients absorb over a longer period of time, constituting an array of flavours to develop. The most common flavours of Sidamo coffee are citrus, jasmine and floral tastes with a bright, biting acidity.
History of Ethiopia Sidamo
Sidamo is a large region in the south of Ethiopia, with many variations in climate and topography. This results in many variations of flavour the coffee can have. Elevation, soil type, rainfall and the process the farm undertakes all having an effect. As with most countries, coffees that are grown in smaller plantations within the Sidamo region may not contain the words ‘sidamo’, however the full traceability of these coffees are worth more than the name that appears on the sack. Most Ethiopian coffees are sold through the EXC trade system, meaning that the beans that are labelled Sidamo could have been farmed from various plantations around the region. The Sidamo region offers enough of a unique flavour trait that the taste of the region is never lost during this merging of green beans.
