Where is limu in Ethiopia?
Limu coffee grows in the South-West of Ethiopia between 1,100 to 1,900 meters above sea level. The coffee is known and desired for its good cup, sweet, spicy/winey flavor, and balanced body. Washed Limu coffee is considered one of Ethiopia’s best highland grown coffees.
The catchment area for Ethiopian Mocha Djimmah (Limu) is the largest in Ethiopia. These coffees are well known for their body and acidity. Limu coffee is grown in the Illubabor and Kaffa regions of Ethiopia at elevations ranging from 3,600 to 6,200 feet in the southwest/southcentral Ethiopia producing medium-sized coffee beans with a distinctive roundish shape and green color, an area that produces and exports about 60,000 tons of coffee each year. Limu is a market name.

Lara Roji –
I love this delicious medium roast bean! Such a great deal for fair trade coffee and it smells wonderful. At a pot a day, a package lasts us about a week. Best Limu Coffee Beans. Highly recommend it.
