This natural processed coffee is grown in south western Ethiopia in the regions of Kaffa and Illubabor. Although these areas account for around 50% of the coffee exported from Ethiopia (most of it commercial grade) they also produce a restricted amount of specialty grade coffee which is mainly forest harvested.

Forest harvested basically means it is self sown and grows under the shade of natural forest trees. Forest coffee offers a wide diversity for selection and breeding so as to have plant stock selected for disease resistance, high yields and top quality in terms of aroma as well as flavour. Forest coffee accounts for about 10% of the total coffee production in Ethiopia.

We have cupped many coffees from Djimmah before and have always been disappointed by the flavour distractions in the cup in terms of earthy or musty flavours which generally come from no care or attention given to picking or processing. This forest harvested lot is very different.
