This heirloom Arabica, organic, fair trade Ethiopian coffee comes from the Oromia co-op created in 1999 with a mission to bring coffee from small growers in the Southwest region of Ethiopia to the specialty market. Oromia’s coffee is heirloom, forest-grown, organic, and naturally processed. In 2005, the cooperative was awarded first place for their unwashed coffee in the East African Fine Coffee Association cupping competition. Coffee from this region is well renowned for its bright fruity acidity which can range from a citric cup to a deep ripe berry and its smooth velvety cocoa - like body.
