The higher altitudes and lower temperatures produce a slower maturing fruit and a harder, denser bean, and are thus more desirable. Nicaragua has long been known as an excellent coffee growing region. It has varied coffee growing regions, but most are quite high in elevation, producing an excellent cup.


Djimmah coffee is grown in the Illubabor and Kaffa regions in the southwest of Ethiopia at elevations from 1,400 - 2,000 meters above sea level. Coffees here are mostly shade-grown and produced by smallholder farmers. The coffee cherries are hand-picked and delivered to central washing stations for further processing during harvest.

The whole coffee cherries are spread out on raised African beds to dry in the sun for the natural processing method. They are turned several times a day. At night they are covered for protection against cooling temperatures and rains. Once they reach the targeted humidity level, the cherries are milled to remove the husks before being finally prepared for export.


We've been awaiting the arrival of this one with eager anticipation. Introducing the Sigri Estate Washed "B" from the Western Highlands of Papua New Guinea, near Mount Hagen.

This coffee is organically grown. This delicious bean will make for an excellent single origin espresso, or base for a premium blend.
