Ethiopian Organic Coffee Beans. This coffee is from the Djimma region of Ethiopia and is a light roast, mild and mellow.
These Ethiopian Organic Coffee Beans come from the south east of Ethiopia. Coffee production in Ethiopia is a longstanding tradition which dates back dozens of centuries. It comes from trees which are the nearest to the original trees that were first used for cultivation. In fact the word is derived comes from the name of the Ethiopian town Kaffa. Ethiopia is also where Coffea arabica, the coffee plant, originates. The plant is now grown in various parts of the world; Ethiopia itself accounts for around 3% of the global coffee market.
Organic coffee is coffee produced without the aid of artificial chemical substances, such as certain additives or some pesticides and herbicides.
Many factors are taken into consideration when coffee is considered for organic certification. For example, the coffee farm’s fertilizer must be 100% organic. Some organic fertilizer options include chicken manure, coffee pulp, bocachi and general compost. If inorganic fertilizers such as synthetic nitrogen, phosphate, and potash are used, then the crop grown cannot be certified organic.
