About Ethiopia Sidamo Sibu Natural Grade 3

Sidamo is a province in the southern part of Ethiopia, with its capital city at Irgalem, and after 1978 at Awasa. We source our Sidamo coffees from a number of direct relationship cooperatives and farmer groups, and occasionally through the ECX if they’re tasty and we have to have them! Almost all of these coffees are grown at between 1600-2200 meters above sea level and most of the producers produce both washed and unwashed coffees. All coffees in Sidamo are harvested between November and January with the main shipping period commencing in March through to about September each year.

This lot is a natural (unwashed) processed Sidamo. In well prepared natural processing, ripe cherries are handpicked and then sent for sun-drying on African drying beds without any pulping or washing. It is important to turn the coffee regularly, as natural processed coffee is prone to mold. Once the coffee has reached the optimum moisture level, the coffee is rested. The coffee is then hulled, graded, picked by hand and bagged up, ready for export.
