Ethiopia has a long history of coffee traditions and is considered the birthplace of arabica coffee. Until now, most of the best coffees in the world have not yet been discovered in the deep forests of Ethiopia. This creates lots of opportunity for Ethiopians to unearth the potential of Ethiopian specialty coffee.
The western part of Ethiopia coffee growing area is mainly focusing producing washed coffee. It is interesting that this lot comes as natural coffee. The natural process has the ability to capture terroir flavours with greater clarity and sweetness. It highlights the distinctively clean and sweet flavour that can only be found in Ethiopia coffee.
SNAP Coffee was established in 2012 by young entrepreneur Neguesse Debele, aiming to change this by carrying the values of quality, traceability, and transparency. Besides mainly operating as a coffee exporter, SNAP Coffee also owned three wet mills in Kochere and partnered with other local wet mills. This particular lot was sourced from Yirgacheffe, which is located in the southern part of Sidama, Ethiopia.
