Ethiopia is widely regarded as the birthplace of coffee, and the country's coffee varieties are among the most distinctive and sought after in the world.
Djimmah typically grows at altitudes of 1340-1830 metres, providing an ideal environment for coffee growth, while forest trees protect the plants from the sun and keep the soil moist.
In Ethiopia coffee is typically served through the Tukke or Bunna coffee ritual which involves roasting beans in a skillet over open fire and then grinding them with a mortar and pestle. Proper etiquette would be to smell the beans before roasting, and sharing three cups of coffee with those present. In Habesha culture, elders are always served first. The coffee is served in hand-made clay pots called Jebena, and poured from high into small pots or bowls, and drank with a small amount of salt and sugar. The coffee is typically served with traditional snacks like Kolo.
Really great coffee, beans are fresh and the flavour is rich. Hopefully they'll do bigger bags in the future as it's really lovely and runs out fast!
Hi there - so glad to hear you love the coffee, and thanks for being a valued customer! We now offer coffee subscriptions so you'll never have to worry about running out again! :)
As soon as I opened the postage packet I was hit with such a strong aroma, which was then followed by beautiful flavours when I actually drank the coffee! Absolutely love it!! Good bye Starbucks ♀️
Thanks for such a glowing review, Heather. Thanks for being a valued customer!
I really loved this coffee, exceptionally smooth and not bitter at all. I made it using a french press and could not recommend more for any coffee lovers out there.
Thanks for the awesome review Francesca, and glad to hear you loved the coffee. Grateful to have you as part of our community! :)
Lovely! Great packaging, fine enough to just place in a mug and the flavour was great! Sweet and still hit the caffeine spot.
This blend was absolutely beautiful, before I even read the packaging properly I could smell the citrus and berry notes. The beans come from direct trade, so you can feel good whilst drinking it too. The price is so good for such a big bag, definitely worth every penny, I know where I’ll be getting my coffee from now on!
