Ethiopia Limu coffee, exceptional flavors of the original terroir.
Let's go back to the origin of coffee - Ethiopia. Among the best coffees in the world is the Ethiopian Limu coffee produced in the heart of the Limmu region. It is one of the least caffeinated cafes in the world. It is both very smooth and very rich in aromas, which offers a perfect balance when tasting. It is also ideal, because it offers a delicious and fruity nose. The texture of the brewed coffee is very vinous. Ethiopian coffees are known to be very complex with nice delicate notes of lime, exotic fruits and white flowers.
Very lively in character, Ethiopia produces these magnificent beans in the heart of Limmu. Coffee is classified in the aromatic repertoire of flower and fruit. The dominant aromas are lime, apricot and chamomile. It is between 1'000 and 1'800 meters of altitude that the coffee is produced and washed to obtain a dense character.
What is specialty coffee?
Specialty coffee is a top-of-the-range coffee known as “rare”, with unique characteristics in the world. It is cultivated in the highest altitudes of the world, in family plantations whose objective is the superior quality, signed by a manual harvest in order to guarantee the perfection of the grain. The terroir coffees are carefully sourced for the care taken by the producer, a superior manual and selective harvest, full traceability, a cultivation method and a respected and controlled treatment process.
