Fairtrade, ready to roast, green beans from the Limu Region in the western highlands of Oromia, Ethiopia. 

Cup profile: Limu & Djimma, another popular coffee producing region overlap. The Limu region shares many characteristics with the Southern regions, especially Yirgacheffe and Sidamo. Once roasted and ground, coffees from the three regions also share the floral notes and citric acidity. Limu is known for having a fuller body than the other two regions. 

Most farms in Limu are semi-forest regions, typically under 1 hectare in size. Farmers selectively handpick cherry and deliver their cherry to nearby washing stations. Frequently floated at intake, to remove underripes and visually inspected for any damaged cherry, it is then pulped and fermented. 

The abundance of water in the region means that most washing stations will wet ferment coffee, and some will change the water several times during fermentation. After fermentation, parchment is washed in clean water and moved to raised beds to dry. At the beds, workers will pick over drying parchment and remove any damaged or defective crop. To ensure even drying, the parchment is turned regularly and usually takes around 10 days to dry.   

Available in bags of 250g, 500g or 1kg for home roasting. ROAST BEFORE CONSUMPTION.

Coffee is Fairtrade certified, traded, audited and sourced from Fairtrade producers, total 100%. For more visit
