Coffee Essentials: Ethiopia Sidamo Single Origin Coffee in Brisbane

Friday, May 25th, 2012

We’d like to introduce you to our single origin coffee, Ethiopia Sidamo,* from our local coffee roaster Dancing Bean.

Single origin coffee is coffee that  comes from one country. Several factors define the flavours and aroma of a single origin coffee, such as soil, altitude, climate and its harvesting and processing methods.

This Ethiopian single origin* coffee come from the highlands of the famous Sidama region (marked in the  map below).

The coffee beans are grown between 1,800 – 2,200 meters above sea level and processed naturally, giving it a distinct mocha flavour with a fruity aftertaste of cherries and strawberries — yum!
