The Sidamo region in Ethiopia is known for its distinctive and drinkable coffee. Wild Sidamo Beans are mainly grown in the Ethiopian highlands at lower altitudes, making them more acidic and having more bodies than other beans from higher elevations. They are also hand-picked, giving them a more thorough cleaning compared to machine-harvested beans. The best thing about Wild Sidamo Coffee is that you can have it fresh (in the bean) right after your purchase, unlike most other coffees that need to be aged like wine… or then ground and packaged (yuck!).
The best thing about wild Sidamo coffee is that it is grown high in the mountain in Ethiopia so far from the disease and pollution of the big cities. This is a significant factor in its good taste. Also, it is grown by farmers who are organized in cooperatives and guided by Fair Trade, who get the right price for their crop and live in a dignified way. You can drink this coffee with confidence knowing that you are directly helping to improve the lives of thousands of Ethiopians, who wouldn’t have been able to sell their harvest otherwise. The unique taste of Wild Sidamo will also wake up your senses and leave you wanting more. A captivating flavor of red grapes, berries, light cherry, and chocolate tones awaken the palate and are supported by a full body that imparts a lasting finish. Flavors intensify as the coffee is brewed to full strength. Consequently, we recommend using a fine grind. We slow drip-brew using our French press pot. Sidamo beans should be roasted to medium-dark brown and have an initial aroma of green coffee with a gentle floral note.
