Ethiopia Sidamo Chire - Gr 1.

A great find and addition to our rotating 'Drummer Boy - Origins' range. Open the bag and get punched in the face by a ripe punnet of blueberries, meant our head roaster, Joel, couldn't help himself but keep the green bean on the arrival cards.

Estate:         Collection of small farms on volcanic soil.
Elevation:    1950m
Varietals:     Heirloom

This Grade 1 Heirloom coffee from the Sidamo region in Western Ethiopia does nothing but bring a sparkle to our eyes. From a small collection of farms resting a comfortable 1950m above sea level, the nutrients of the volcanic soils together with the beans going through the natural process, brings about a delightfully rich, sweet and juicy Ethiopian that’ll keep coffee lovers coming back for more. This coffee is all about the blueberry. Surrounded by an orange-like acidity, notice the development of subtle chocolate notes followed by sweet florals on the finish.
