Aside from its near-legendary status as the birthplace of coffee, there is much to love about Ethiopia as a producing nation, including incredible diversity of flavor and character among its microregions. Coffee was literally made to thrive in the lush environment its forests provide, developing nuanced floral characteristics, articulate sweetness and sparkling acidity. And thanks to a reform by Ethiopia’s prime minister allowing co-ops to export coffee directly, the country can maintain separation of top coffee lots, higher prices for farmers, and increased recognition for the best quality coffees they have to offer.
