Background Details

Ethiopia Sidamo 2 GrainPro is sourced from family owned farms within the Sidamo growing region of Ethiopia. Coffee producers deliver ripe cherries to washing stations where it is carefully sorted, pulped, fermented, and then washed. The washed parchment is carefully sorted and immediately placed on raised beds carefully constructed to ensure proper air circulation and temperature control for an optimal drying process. Samples are then sent to the Ethiopia Commodity Exchange (ECX) where the coffee is made available through auction.
