One of our favourite coffees. This coffee highlights to us how delicious Ethiopian coffee is. It is wild, winey and yet full bodied.
It is similar to the Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee but not as floral. This coffee is grown about 1600 miles above sea level in the Oromia region of south west Ethiopia and is a mix of coffees beans from just six farms.
