Story

Africa’s famous Great Rift Valley has long been considered a likely locale for the birthplace of humanity. It’s also a likely locale for the birthplace of coffee. It is here that the lush, green Sidamo coffee growing region is found.

Smallholder farmers in the West Arsi Zone of Sidamo grow many different heirloom varietals of native Arabica coffee beans, which also grow wild on the hillsides of the region. The farmers pool their coffee beans at a coffee washing station, and the diversity of varietals yields coffee of wonderful complexity.

This is a washed coffee, unlike our Ethiopian Natural (link). In the washed coffee process, the coffee bean is removed from the coffee cherry, fermented to remove the mucilage, and then dried. After a taste of this coffee you’ll understand why The Roasterie has transported it all the way from Ethiopia, the birthplace of all coffee.
