!NEW! NENSEBO REFISA, Ethiopia
Sidamo is a well known region for most people. That said, with the privatisation of the coffee industry in Ethiopia over the past 2 years, new areas and municipalities or sub regions have been developing. Some cross over from Sidamo to a lesser known region called West Arsi.
West Arsi has always fascinated us with its diverse profiles. Bordering Bale Mountain National Park’s Harenna Forest, an area that just recently started to see a lot of investment from producers, you can now find micro-stations processing wild forest coffee in the most remote areas hardly accessible by car.
This coffee really popped out on the table when we cupped it the first time. It has so much lemon, lemonade, orange blossom and other soft florals. It is tight, spicy and has great depth troughout.
