ETHIOPIA

Coffea Arabica stems from Ethiopia

Coffea Arabica actually stems from Ethiopia. It is here in the ancient African lands that the plant was first discovered for it’s ability to provide extra energy and still to this day all coffee plants can be traced back to Ethiopia, where the Arabica Heriloom grows. Heirloom means original or wild, as the plant has not been modified by other means than time and nature itself.

Here we buy both coffee from the Sidama region as well as Yirgacheffe. The Ethiopian coffees are well know for their rich distinct flavors of citrus, sweet and floral notes and it’s bright appearance makes it a wonderful cup of coffee.

We sell it as a single origin, from Yirghacheffe, as well as the in our blends like Amokkacrema where we use a Sidama.
You can almost taste the fine work that gone it making this coffee, all the way from the farm. Below you can read about how the coffee comes to life together with our partners in Ethiopia, where we buy directly.

The farms in Ethiopia are very small, so it’s many families that contribute to a full shipment of coffee. They are handpicked and sorted, dried on african raised beds and controlled buy officials before it leaves the country. This is pretty standard in Ethiopia, but Amokka takes it a step further, with the venture into the new Impact Trade model developed with our partners.
