Reminder! This coffee is raw, you must roast it before brewing.
The Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia tends to get a lot of love around here, and for good reason! But the often overlooked region of Sidamo also produces some premium grade coffee and has been really gearing towards sustainability the past few years. We've decided to put our tried and true Yirg to the side for a bit and put some high grade Sidamo through the roaster. We're loving it and you will too!
Compared to our usual Yirg, the Sidamo is decidedly more light, refreshing and crisp. Don't expect the same complexity and twisty flavors you usually get from a natural processed coffee. The flavors to look for will be decidedly floral with a crisp and sweet feel. We noted sweet lemon, raspberry and honey. Perfect for an iced coffee now that the days are finally getting warmer!
