This Week’s Featured Roast/Torréfaction de la semaine: Ethiopian Kaffa Wild Forest Coffee

This Ethiopian is from the region of Kaffa! The history behind this coffee is massive. Kaffa gave coffee its name. Legend has it that this is where coffee was first discovered by ‘happy goats’. This area and its forests are said to harbour the last of the wild Ethiopian Lions. The rain forests of the region are well known for the biodiversity they contain. This includes diversity as it relates to the coffee plant itself.

The Kaffa Wild forest coffee is from coffee plants that are naturally grown. Not planted. There may be some management of the plants like clearing underbrush for picking, but otherwise these are wild plants. This practice is a centuries old tradition and has only recently become a commercial option for the people of the region.

Again this coffee has an intense aroma. There is a surprising sweetness on the nose. Caramel and other complex aromas. The flavour is reminiscent of the Yergacheffe coffee I have here except sweeter.

Enjoy!
