Pedro Lima - Maguidala
Duromina - Jimma, Ethiopia
We just had to sneak in this delightful washed Ethiopia from the west before the year was over. It's a shining example of what coffees from western Ethiopia can taste like, and a great way to celebrate the end of a long, long year. This coffee comes to us from farmers who contribute to the Duromina farmers cooperative society in the Kata Muduga union, specifically from those near Goma in the Jimma zone. We had already purchased the bulk of our Ethiopian coffees by the time we first cupped this sample, but it was so good we felt like we had to fit it in somewhere. This coffee has intense sweetness and juicy stone fruit qualities, but don't overlook the floral components as well, which perfume the cup rather nicely if we don't say so ourselves.
