As we count down to the Year of Goat, we celebrate in advance with a new coffee from Ethiopia - Wottona Bultuma. This coffee hails from the Sidama region. Sidama is known for its clean and high quality washed coffee with unique red berry flavours. Due to the different growing conditions, coffee from the Sidama zone can be quite different from each other.
This coffee is from a coffee cooperative called Wottona Bultuma. It is sold and marketed by the Sidama Cooperative Union. They are also responsible for the dry milling, sorting and bagging before export. The coffee cherries are bought in from the local surroundings, from plots that are more than 2000 meters above sea level. They have several collection centers in the local areas. The cherries are from small family plots of both recently planted trees of improved varietals and traditional old varieties. The variety is called Sidamo type. The coffee from this producer is limited in amount and thanks to our partners at Nordic Approach, we managed to get some of this delicious coffee from Wottona Bultuma.
This coffee comes with complex acidity that tantalizes your palate with layers of red berries, stone fruits and sweet spice. The citric and floral aromatics draws you in to savour this juicy cup. Well-structured in body and elegant in flavours, this coffee will definitely be a crowd pleaser.
