Just about every Ethiopian coffee out there has hints of blueberry if you dig deep enough into your pallet. Here at Happy Monday, we are all fans of the super fruity offerings that come from Ethiopia so we set out to source the biggest, bluest, berriest beans we could find. We tasted samples from all over the country before deciding on this delicious single-origin coffee From The Arfasa General Trading Company.
- Sidamo enjoys soil and climatic conditions-including altitude, rainfall, and temperature - that makes it perfect for the production of the Arabica Coffee. Specialty grade coffee from Sidamo is grown mainly in small villages (kebeles.) Sidamo is well known for its production of "garden coffee." The coffee is planted at low density, ranging from 1000 to 1800 trees per hectare and is mostly fertilized with organic matter. All of the coffee produced under this system is agronomically organic - but most are not certified as such. About 95% of the Sidamo coffee is fully washed. Fresh and clean cherries arrive at washing stations where they are pulped and allowed to ferment naturally. The fermented coffee is washed with clean running water, soaked in clean water, and then dried till it retains about 11.5 percent moisture.
