This is the region where it is believed coffee originated. It is grown in the highlands between 4,920 and 7,220 feet above sea level. This means that the beans are considered “strictly high grown” (SHG) and have more time to gather nutrients from the soil which can result in a distinct flavor profile.

Sidamo’s coffee beans contain notes of citrus, berries, and lemon giving them a more acidic taste while maintaining a medium body. Please note that Sidamo includes Yirgacheffe and Guji coffee as well if you ever see those marketed as regions themselves.
