The finest Ethiopian coffee from the wild Arabica coffee tree. Sidamo is grown on an extremely high plateau facing the Red Sea. Most Ethiopian coffees are grown without use of agricultural chemicals, under shade and interplanted with other crops. This type is grown in the Sidamo region south of the capital, Addis Ababa. It is the most southern and most productive province in the country. The region is well known for having ideal climate conditions for growing coffee. This is all due to high altitudes, between 1,600–1,900 meters, ample rainfall, optimal temperature and rich soil. Washed Sidamos are typically high-quality coffee with unique flavors like sweet lemon and floral, plus an ideal balance between acidity and body.
