Known as the 'birthplace of coffee', Ethiopia has a reputation for producing high-grown and high-quality beans. In particular, the regions of 'Sidamo', 'Yirgacheffe' and 'Limu' are well-renowned for their washed-processed coffees, with fragrant floral, citrus and tea-like flavours naturally occurring in abundance.
