Today I am trying the Ethiopia Sidamo. These coffees are known for their slightly woody aroma along with a rich body that is very complex along with a bright and vibrant aftertaste.
This coffee reminds me of our Teasia single origin Brazil Fazenda, as they both have a strong but smooth taste. There’s a well-balanced amount of flavor which consist of the peach and a good amount of citrus, but the main flavor and aroma is definitely buttery caramel. This brew would pair really nicely with some bacon & eggs, which is the perfect way to jump start your mornings. Also, super enjoyable as a cold brew that you can take along to the beach.
FUN FACT: Did you know that Ethiopia is the seventh largest producer of coffee and the top producer of coffee in Africa?

It’s day 6 of my coffee taste testing and I’m starting to get really into all these wonderful single origin coffee beans. If you could only smell the aroma when the beans are freshly roasted, it’s simply amazing.
Today’s coffee is from Ethiopia and it’s a bit hard to pronounce: Ethiopia Yirgacheffe or Irgacheffe. The beans are known for of the highest quality Arabica coffee beans in the world. Ethiopian Yirgacheffe has a high quality unique fragrance and distinctive flavor.
If I could compare this coffee I would say it’s close to Brazil Fazenda, they both have a strong yet smooth taste. There’s a well-balanced amount of flavor which consists of peach to the distinct amount of citrus, but the main flavor and smell is caramel. YUM! How about a nice cup of freshly brewed single origin Ethiopia Yirgacheffe coffee enjoyed with a hearty breakfast with bacon and eggs to start your relaxing weekend. Afterwards, take a stroll on the beach to clear your mind.
PRO TIP: Due to its bright notes and vibrant aftertaste, this coffee makes an awesome iced coffee so don’t be afraid to add some ice and milk to enjoy!
