This coffee was a beautiful surprise! We roasted it light, medium and dark. A lighter roast is extremely bright and tastes like Summer. That is, if the season could be cupped and served.

Like may Ethiopian coffees, it does have a beautiful tea-like quality with a natural sweetness shining through.There are definitive notes of stone fruits like apricot and peach which truly shine in this coffee.

If you are looking for a new coffee that will surprise you, this is one to try.


The Limu, Oromia region has decades of Arabica coffee production on both privately and publicly owned plantations. In the past years, the farmers, as well as the washing stations, in the region became more skilled at processing their coffees. Today, the Limu qualities are far more consistent with a fine lemony acidity and subtle flavors.

Limu is still very remote. Large swaths of the land are covered with tropical rainforests. Regional farmers take advantage of the shade provided by the large forest trees and the rich soil is of course part of that terroir.
