    Pleasant Ethiopian that doesn’t really pop. Slightly grapefruity, grapefruit zest, and hoppy (as advertised) with black tea character. Some tropical and floral notes definitely in there but muted. Finish is clean and still hoppy. Made it three times and couldn’t really get the acidity to pop.

    Cupping Method:As pour over Hario v60. This 12g with 195g of water worked the best. 16:1 at 203F

More Details

Roast Level: Light
Light roast coffee is a delicately roasted coffee that retains more of the beans' natural flavors and characteristics. Light-roasted coffees have bright acidity, complex fruit, and floral notes. Light roast coffee does not have less caffeine than darker roasts because caffeine levels remain stable during roasting.
Bean Source Country: Ethiopia
Widely regarded as the birthplace of coffee, Ethiopia boasts diverse and complex flavors, from bright, floral, and citrusy in Yirgacheffe to wine-like and berry-toned in Sidama. The country's heirloom varieties, combined with unique processing methods, make Ethiopian coffee truly distinctive and sought-after by enthusiasts worldwide.
Bean Source Region: Sidama
The Sidama coffee region, also known as Sidamo, is located in southern Ethiopia and is renowned for producing high-quality Arabica coffee beans. Named after the Sidama people who inhabit the area, the region is characterized by its fertile highlands, with coffee grown at elevations ranging from 1,500 to 2,200 meters above sea level. The high altitude, combined with the favorable climate and rich volcanic soil, results in a distinctive flavor profile for Sidama coffee, often featuring bright acidity and complex, fruity notes.
