Ethiopia is without doubt the gate to world of specialty coffee. We primarily look for bright acidity, ripeness and sweetness in the coffee, and we recommend those with better body and sweetness for espresso and brightness for filters.

Recommended for Blended, Single Origin Espresso and Filter Coffee.
