The Sidamo region of Ethiopia is one of the oldest coffee growing regions in the world, rumored to date back to the 9th Century. In fact, many people consider it to be the birth place of coffee as the world knows and loves it today. The Ethiopians love their coffee so much that even though they are the 7th largest producers of coffee in the world they consume more than half of it domestically! Ethiopian coffees are world renowned for their unique fruity and floral flavors. The pour over brew method is perfect for extracting these types of coffee.
