The History

Coffee From Ethiopia

Coffee production in Ethiopia has deep historical roots, spanning many centuries and is where the coffee plant, Coffee arabica, originates. Legend has it that a goatherder named Kaldi first came across the coffee plant whilst noting the energizing effects it seemed to have on his grazing flock. This delightful and interesting story was first published in 1671, and of marks a pivotal moment in coffee’s history.

Coffee is now cultivated in various regions of the world, with Ethiopia still contributing to 3% of all production. Remarkably, little has changed in the traditional methods of coffee production, with the majority of tasks—cultivation and drying—still being carried out meticulously by hand. Ethiopia is renowned for following ancient traditions and using manual craftsmanship in coffee production, which is perhaps why their coffee is deemed extra special.

The exceptional quality of Sidamo coffee is well known by coffee lovers. Growing at such high altitudes, the coffee can be classified as “Strictly High Grown” (SHG). Coffee plants grow and develop slower there, which allows the beans to absorb more nutrients. This extended maturation process, influenced by the local climate and soil conditions, contributes to the creation of robust flavors that characterize Ethiopian coffees from the Sidamo region.
