This Fully washed coffee from Limu region is a favorite for its stellar shelf life and balanced cup. It is delicate, floral and fragrant with notes of citrus and black tea.

 

This Limu coffee comes from the Western part of Ethiopia near the forests that are the birthplace of Arabica coffee. Limu and Djimma, another popular coffee producing region, overlap. The region shares many characteristics with the Southern regions, especially Yirgacheffe and Sidamo, coffees from the three regions also share the floral notes and citric acidity. Limu is known for having a fuller body than the other two regions.

 

Most farms in Limu are semi-forest systems, typically under 1 hectare. Farmers selectively handpick cherry and most deliver their cherry to nearby washing stations. At intake, cherry is frequently floated to remove underripes and visually inspected for any damaged cherry. Cherry is pulped and fermented. The abundance of water in the region means that most washing stations will wet ferment coffee, and some will change the water several times during fermentation. After fermentation, parchment is washed in clean water and moved to raised beds to dry. At the beds, workers will pick over drying parchment to remove any damaged or defective parchment. Drying parchment is turned regularly to ensure even drying.  Parchment typically takes about 10 days to dry.
