The Ethiopian Negash washed and unwashed SIDAMO comes from the Southern regions of Ethiopia specifically from Borena, Benssa, Arreressa, Arbegona, Aleta-wondo, Dale, Chiko, Shebedino, Wensho and Look Abaya. The region of Sidamo is 1,500-2,220 metres above sea level. Coffee grown at these higher elevations grow more slowly and allow more time to absorb nutrients which are then delivered to the coffee bean and help develop more robust flavours. Ethiopian Sidamo is consistently rated one of the best coffee’s in the world. This is a coffee that is best known for its rich, full body, sweet and complex flavour with a smooth energized finish. Sweet and complex flavour, low acidity, floral aroma, and a finish that is bright and soft. A good Sidamo is well-balanced with cupping notes exhibiting berries and citrus (lemony) with complex acidity.
