Ethiopia, the homeland of arabica coffee, has numerous growing districts that produce coffees of dramatically varied quality and character. Sidamo is a state in the south-central part of the country that turns out the finest washed coffees in the region, and, arguably, the world. Cup-quality reaches its pinnacle around the town of Yirgacheffe near the center of the state. This singular coffee exhibits an intense subtle complexity, full body and moderate acidity, with concentrated chocolate, spicy floral and citrusy fruit notes. The brew is deep, rich and satisfying, with a long clean finish. It is truly an extraordinary cup, imbued with centuries of tradition, breed, elegance and finesse.
