Sidamo GR2 (Ethiopia)


Earl Grey ,caramel, almond and peach

Sidamo coffees have a profound complexity that many attribute to the diversity of local landrace varieties. This coffee, produced by smallholders and processed at washing stations, preserves the depth and breadth of flavor. 

The Sidamo region of Southern Ethiopia holds the distinction as one of the three trademarked coffee regions of Ethiopia. Alongside Harrar and Yirgacheffe, Sidamo holds a Designation of Origin for coffee grown in the region. That's unsurprising when you consider the high altitudes of 1,550 to 2,200 meters above sea level, plentiful rainfall and fertile soil that makes the coffee grown in this region so remarkable.  

The Sidamo region is named after the indigenous ethnic group, the Sidama, who call the region their home. On Sidamo’s Eastern border lies the large regions of Arsi and Bale while to the West, Sidamo is bordered by Gamogofa.
