Deep spice, berry, and chocolate flavors gush from this beautiful coffee from the Sidama Province of Ethiopia. The fruity aroma comes from the natural (unwashed) drying process used in processing this coffee cherry. The complex combination of wild berries, bananas, and vanilla blend together with a smoky base that works especially well in a French Press for your coffee drinking pleasure.

From our coffee cupping:

  • Aroma: Smoky, blueberries, medicinal
  • Flavor: Chocolate covered blueberries, rich malty vanilla, some red wine notes
  • Aftertaste: Lingering, bitter sweet chocolate, slightly drying
  • Acidity: Medium, soft
  • Body: Heavy and fudgy
  • Balance: Balance leaning towards body
  • Overall/Notes: Wonderful flavors of cocoa bitters, blueberries immersed in dark chocolate, and vanilla extract come together to present a divinely chewy coffee that tends to linger on your tongue.

Ethiopia Sidama Viennese makes for a great flash-brew (iced) coffee.  Get our recommended brew recipe here.
