  • The specialty Arabica coffees of majestic Africa are considered to be some of the world's most exquisite. The dramatically high elevations and lush soil conditions are optimal for the cultivation of premium coffee.

    There are significant differences between countries in the region; however, in general, washed African Arabica coffees are bright, balanced and contain a citrus, berry, winy or floral essence.

    Coffee Region of Ethiopia

    Ethiopia

    The three major growing regions here are Harrar, Sidamo, and Yirgacheffe, which all come from the Ethiopian Highlands at between four and seven thousand feet.

    Harrar coffees are dry-processed coffees and tend to come from old varietal typica coffee trees. These coffees are noted for their big body and sometimes extremely "wild" fruity finish.

    Sidamo and Yirgacheffe coffees are for the most part wet-processed coffees and both tend to have a floral/berry finish going for them depending on the given crop year.

    Coffee Region of Tanzania

    Tanzania

    Characteristically full in body, rich in flavor and slightly fruity, the coffees of this Kenyan neighbor also offer a winy acidity, bold cup and lower acidity. It is important to note that Tanzania is known for a particular type of coffee bean, peaberry, that results from the cherry of the coffee plant containing just a single round bean rather than 2 flat-sided half beans. Many believe this produces an enhanced flavor.
