NOTE: All of our premium Arabica coffees are roasted to City+ to Full City roasts, showing minimal-to-no surface oils….we want all of the flavor to stay in the beans until the coffee is ground! Despite the additional descriptors, the first flavor and aroma you'll think of is "COFFEE".

Ethiopia Sidamo Arfasa 2019

Arfasa General Trading produced our Ethiopia Sidamo Arfasa. The company has a 300 ha coffee farm in the Kaffa region. Arfasa General Trading Plc ,as a family business, was conceived in January 2005, with a pioneer founder, Mr, Degafa Sime, holding vital ownership state and Managing roles. They also manage eight coffee processing sites, among them five of the washing stations are found in Sidama zone. Harvest concluded in January 2019 and arrived in the US in late September after untold delays in Ethiopia owing to civil and commercial unrest...but worth the wait!

Sidamo enjoys soil and climatic conditions-including altitude, rainfall and temperature - that make it perfect for the production of Arabica Coffee. Speciality 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 is not certified as such. About 95 % of the Sidamo coffee is fully washed. Fresh and clean cherries arrive at Arfasa 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.
This light-medium Sidamo evinces cup notes of blueberry, vanilla, lavender and baker's chocolate. Recommender for pourover and drip but also French Press, as its body is somewhat beefier than some of the Yirgacheffes we've had in years past.

"I just now finished a cup, no pot, of that wonderful coffee you sent me. First of all wanted to thank you very much for doing that. I am honored you value my opinion. But then again I have ben interested in coffee at an early age. I was a regular at McNulty's in the Village. I think the last time I can remember getting excited about a coffee bean was tasting coffee from China. But this one even more so. I wish I could tell others of my find but not many people I know are "into" coffee like I am. So I report back to you now. The first sip was so much like the tasting of a fine wine. You know that the next taste would only be better and from there you savor every swallow. So in ending this letter I did not like it. I loved it!!!"
