Compared to our medium roast ethiopian coffee, our dark roast boasts smoky and caramel flavors. It contains a more bold and rich body, while still giving a slight fruity note in the aftertaste.
Ethiopian washed coffees are more elegant, lighter, and drier on the palate than naturally processed coffees. The body is not too strong and has an almost tea-like delicacy which reveals a mild and pleasant acidity.
Ethiopia is the region located between the tropic of Cancer and the tropic of Capricorn. It is the perfect region endowed with mild temperatures and plenty of rain. The lush vegetation in Ethiopia allows farmers to grow their coffee trees without having to plant additional trees to provide shade. In fact, the coffee-growing conditions are so good that agricultural chemicals are rarely needed.
The history of Ethiopian coffee is different compared to the other countries that have well-documented, recorded coffee histories. The story of Ethiopian coffee begins with a legend. It all started around 850 AD with a young goat herder named Kaldi. It began when he found his goats acting strange and unusually excited after eating the small berries off a shrub. In curiosity, he ate a few berries and felt energized. He knew the berries were special and immediately grabbed a pocket full of berries and took them to the monks in the monastery at Lake Tana. The monks reacted negatively throwing the berries into the fire and exclaiming it to be “Devils work!” However, the berries roasting in the fire gave off an irresistibly pleasant aroma. In amazement, the monks started to experiment with the coffee seeds soaking it in hot water to preserve the flavors. Drinking the coffee, they experienced the energy it gave them and vowed to drink it daily for their nightly devotions.
Coffee still stands to be an important aspect of daily life for the locals in Ethiopia. It is part of their core cultural tradition to have a ‘coffee ceremony’ which is a social experience where the host harvests, roasts, brews cups of coffee for people to gather and enjoy a good coffee time. There is even a phrase in a local language that translates to “coffee is our bread”.
Ethiopia coffee makes a delicious combination with light fruit desserts such as a lemon pound cake, strawberry shortcake, or a blueberry muffin. The floral and bright acidity of Ethiopian coffee makes a perfect pair with chocolate, especially milk chocolate. This will bring out its notes of wine.
Ethiopia grows the most coffee in Africa, producing 846,575,000 pounds of coffee per year.
The climate in Ethiopia is ideal, the warm, tropical climate with moderate wet and dry seasons allows the coffee plants to be harvested without using agricultural chemicals.
Dark Roast Ethiopian Coffee is truthfully a “One-Time Must” Coffee Treat
The hometown of coffee, Ethiopia, is respected for its beans. It produces some of the best single-origin coffees in the international market. Today we will dig cavernously into this region and discover what makes this coffee-growing nation unique. We’ll look at the rich history of coffee and the current state of coffee in this East African nation. These dark-roast Ethiopian coffee beans are garnered from wild coffee plants in the heart of coffee’s birthplace!
The beans are laden with distinctly unique flavors. This is truthfully a “one-time must” coffee treat provided at an unbelievable price, roasting only after your order is placed. Ethiopia is the novel home of dark-roast Ethiopian coffee. Coffee trees have grown in the uninhabited areas here for eras. The atmosphere is faultless in offering fantastic coffee without adding anything to it. More than a thousand different varieties of coffee are grown in this birthland. High rises in the southern mountainous region make it an excellent growing condition.
Very poor customer service. I never received my coffee and when I sent an email saying I never got it, not even a courtesy of a response. Don’t spend your money if they cannot ship the order n
This is my go to coffee the last few years (whole bean). Low acidity, clean and smooth. I drink it black and have no complaints.
this is by far the best coffee I’ve ever had I don’t like black coffee but I can drink this coffee black because of the delicious flavors it’s absolutely delicious with nothing added I love it ☕️♥️
It's my favorite coffee.
I have found this is one of my favorite coffee's. I only like dark roast bold flavors that are smooth and this one fits the bill. It was suggested by someone in my friends list on facebook. Will try again in the future.
