We recently got in some Ethiopia Kaffa Forest beans, a bean grown on the southwestern side of Ethiopia. Kaffa is the original home of the name for coffee; Kaffa, coffee – see it? Coffee plants grow wild in the mountain rainforests in countless varieties in this region. The Kaffa Forest beans are grown under one of the last remaining forests in Ethiopia.
Cupping notes: We found it has a delicious brightness that is really intense in flavour, and has a light sweetness to it that doesn’t linger around. It would be great paired with something light, such as a Cranberry Scone, and slurped to really bring out that vibrant brightness. It will definitely wake your taste buds up!
