Ethiopian Sidamo Coffee Farming
Sidamo green coffees are grown in the Province of Sidamo in the Ethiopian highlands at elevations from 1,500 up to 2,200 meters above sea level. These elevations qualify the beans as Strictly High Grown (SHG) / Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) – elevations where the best Ethiopian coffees grow more slowly and therefore have more time to absorb nutrients and develop more robust flavors based on the local climate and soil conditions.
