Sidamo A is located on the south of Ethiopia to the right of the Yirgacheffe region.
The area is made up of twenty different administrative areas or woredas, with varying microclimates and different altitudes. A lot of great coffee lots come from this area as it contains the popular zone of Guji, and the renowned town of Shakisso.
Project Origin has developed this experimental lot to focus particular flavour profiles to highlight the best Ethiopian coffees can deliver. Areka is a dark fruit focused red and dark berries, and pink and purple fruit with deep florals, cherry, apricot, peach and dried cranberry. To create this profile, we set very high standards on the sourcing and further screening of the Areka lot to create a solid Gold Label.
This year Areka comes once again from the town of Nansebo, but this time form the hands of Ato Girma.
