Sweet, Citrusy and Floral, this coffee from the Sidama Region is a limited release you won’t want to miss. A delicate filter coffee that balances approachability with distinct taste, it’s an ideal introduction to Ethiopia’s vast coffee portfolio. Unlike most high elevation African Coffees, this landrace varietal has relatively moderate acidity with forward notes of wafer, honey, and black tea.
As roasters, we tend to enjoy coffees that offer a sufficient amount of novelty while ensuring it’s unintrusive to the average coffee-drinker’s palate. The Ethiopian from Zelalem PLC is one we can recommend to anyone intrigued by a single origin or terroir-driven experience.
Slowly matured on a plateau at 1800 meters above sea level, this coffee originates from a collection of small-holder farmers that have been producing coffee in a traditional way for generations. Facilitated by Canadian importer Apex Imports, these producers are rewarded for high quality, terroir-driven coffees through specialty market premium pricing that allows them to enjoy a living wage.
Our recommended brewing recipe is 20 grams per 280 ml of water at a 1:14 ratio. For optimal results, enjoy this coffee through filtered brewing methods such as pour over, Aeropress and batch-brew for a high clarity cup.
