Clifton Coffee - Ethiopia: Hunkute #3, Sidama

Sorry - Sold out - it's been popular!

Getting product details...

Another great example of the classic washed Ethiopian coffees we get access to; coffees from the Sidamo region are famous for their clean, floral, and citric washed characteristics and “high quality” sundries processing of genuine and unique red berry flavours.
The Sidama zone covers a large area with very different growing conditions. Hunkute is located in the highlands and have two different washing stations in the same area. The coffees are truly unique and have proven to be distinct in flavors. Grown at a little over 2000 meters above sea level, from mainly small family plots of both recently planted trees of improved varietals and traditional old varieties.

The variety is called Sidamo type. Organic fertilizer is common, pruning less common. All the cooperatives in Ethiopia belong to a Union, in this case the Sidamo Union that sell and export the coffee. They also take care of dry milling and grading before export, and as with so many washed Ethiopians, this coffee really opens up and shows its character a little later in its life post harvest with many of the younger coffees still showing typically ‘green’ characters as much as 4 months after processing.

Simply delicious on either filter or espresso.
