Types of Ethiopian Coffee Types of Ethiopian Coffee

Ethiopian coffee beans that are grown in either Harar, Sidamo, Yirgacheffe, or Limu regions are kept apart and marketed under their regional name. These regional varieties are trademarked names with the rights owned by Ethiopia.

The coffees of southern Ethiopia are generally wet processed and these include the very fragrant and spicy Ethiopian Yirgacheffes known for their floral aroma, sweet taste and delicate body. Notes of citrus emanate from the brewed cup. Complex Ethiopian Sidamo coffees also come from this region and exhibit a full, rich body with a bright aftertaste. The Ethiopian Ghimbi coffees originate in the western part of Ethiopia and are respected for their sharp acidity as well as complex, rich tastes and aromas.
