Ethiopia Shefina is a clean and nuanced natural coffee, an outlier to the usual high sweetness and acidity characteristic of other natural processed coffees. With a creamy body and smooth aftertaste, delicate notes of peaches and cream, strawberry, and milk chocolate, this offering a great option for people looking for a refined coffee that can be sipped time and time again.
Sidamo has climatic conditions, including altitude, rainfall, and temperature that create a wonderful environment for quality coffee. Specialty coffees from Sidamo are grown mainly in small villages (kebeles). These kebeles refer to the coffee as “garden coffee” which is grown at low density, only around 1000 to 1800 trees per hectare, and is fertilized with organic matter.
Ripe coffees arrive at the Shefina washing station where they are pulped and allowed to ferment. The fermented coffee is washed with running water, soaked, and then dried until the desired moisture of 11.5%. This lot from Shefina washing station is RA, Organic and UTZ certified and has notes of lemongrass, lime, and honey.
