    Teeny tiny uniform beans. Amazing aroma, like kettle corn at the fair, the sweet caramel kind.

    Totally different in the cup but very enjoyable though maybe doesnt quite all come together. Tilts acidic and citrusy with lots of raspberry and mandarin. Its a little too acidic for me but some might like it.

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.
