Description

Sidamo is a region in Ethiopia renowned for its coffee production. Ethiopian Sidamo Coffee Beans, in particular, has strong notes of blackcurrant and red cherry. A light, smooth brew with an aromatic, fruity finish, Ethiopian Sidamo has something for everyone.

What’s more, our special take on this famous coffee is perfect as a filter coffee or can be served in a cafetiere. There has never been a better time to try Ethiopian Sidamo has the region continues to develop its artful coffee-growing skills. Be part of something special today; enjoy Ethiopian Sidamo, your new favourite coffee.

Like tea, the history of coffee is, for the most, a mystery. Many historians suggest that it was discovered in the 10th or 11th Century, although we can’t be sure. What we do know, however, is that it originated from what is present-day Ethiopia.

Allegedly, coffee was first enjoyed by goats, and then humans! Legend has it that one particular goat herder called Kaldi observed his animals feasting on the berries of the coffee plant and eventually decided to try it himself. He soon felt stimulated and uplifted by the berries and in his excitement, took his discovery to the nearby Monastery.

There, the monks proclaimed the berries to be the work of the devil, discarding them in a nearby fire. The heavenly aroma of roasting beans quickly wafted around the room and the monks, realising their mistake, hastily retrieved the beans, placed them in a jug, and covered them with hot water for preservation. Later the monks drank the brew, helping them to keep awake during their nightly devotions (or so the story goes!).

Whether you choose to believe this tale or not, from it a legend was born, and then a truly special beverage, coffee.

Today, Ethiopia still boasts an incredible coffee culture, particularly from the Sidamo and Yirgacheffe regions. This is in large part due to the Arabica tree, native to Ethiopia and believed to be the first tree ever cultivated for coffee.

Ethiopia is, in fact, the top Arabica exporter in Africa and around 12 million Ethiopians make their living from coffee growing and manufacturing. Most of these workers grow their produce at 1,500 to 2,200 metres above sea level, often harvesting between November and February.

Here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company, we buy in only quality-assured Ethiopian Sidamo coffee. So, don’t settle for second best; buy through us today.

    First time I have tried this single origin coffee. Wow! African coffee is always earthy and mysterious and this is no exception. Fruity, touch of something aromatic, hint of African spices in there...and packed with flavour and depth. For me, the test of a good coffee is how it interacts with whatever I'm... Read More.
