Ethiopia Sidamo Grade 2 Organic Sidama Union

After a succesful Yirgacheffe Organic, we come now with a similar coffee, but from the neighbours of Sidamo from the Sidama Union.
Sidama Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (SCFCU) was founded in 2001 to represent coffee producing cooperatives located throughout the Sidama Zone of southern Ethiopia. Originally, the Union consisted of 39 cooperatives which represented over 70,000 farmers.
Today, SCFCU has grown to represent 46 cooperatives and over 80,000 farmers (small holders) making SCFCU the second largest coffee producing cooperative union in Ethiopia. Nearly all coffee produced by our member cooperatives is shade grown in low densities under the canopies of indigenous trees and enset (false banana), a staple food crop. Expect tea like aromas, citrus and fruit.
Sidama coffees exemplify this wealth of flavors and landscapes. From the rugged mountains of Bensa, to the valleys of Dale and Aleta Wendo, there is coffee. Sidama produces washed coffee than any other zone in the country and has built a reputation for quality over many decades. Coffee is engrained in the people’s way of life.
