Ethiopian Jimma Agaro Coffee earned a 95% review

Addis Ababa (HAN) October 12, 2015 – Public Diplomacy and Regional News. A well known coffee
review, Kenneth Davids and the Coffee Review, has given a 95/100 rating to  Ethiopian Jimma Agaro coffee for an Ohio coffee roaster, Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea. Reviewers said that the handcrafted coffee suited those who value “a coffee delicate and lush, pure yet musky and deep.” The fully washed coffee of Ethiopian Jimma Agaro Coffee includes heirloom and native varietal beans grown at elevation of 5,900 to 7,000 feet in the Jimma Zone of Ethiopia’s Oromia State by members of the Biftu Gudina Cooperative.

The Cooperative was established in 2012 and, according to the buyer, it uses all the right methods to produce their coffee, including an eco-pulper, full immersion soak and raised-bed drying. The result is “a super complex, sweet and juicy cup.” The review also noted that Southern Ethiopia coffees like Jimma Agaro Coffee are produced from traditional Ethiopian varieties of Arabica, long grown in the region. When processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying) they typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity
with a particular emphasis on floral notes.
