Although discovered in Ethiopia, the earliest cultivation of coffee was in Yemen. The Yemenis gave coffee the Arabic name qahwa, from which our words coffee and cafe both derive. Qahwa originally meant wine, and Sufi mystics in Yemen used coffee as an aid to concentration and even spiritual intoxication when they chanted the name of God. Fitting that coffee is considered the Wine of the Gods! And the making of coffee was considered an act of subversion against the authorities. But that's a whole different story!
To pay homage to Kaldi we've been searching for the perfect Ethiopian coffee. Not finding anything on the market we liked we created our own brand!
In homage to the Birthplace of Coffee, Ethiopia, we are thrilled to offer our our own Red Tail Brand Ethiopia Sidamo. We have a distinct preference for Latin American coffees, but this Ethiopian coffee is the exception. Medium Roast. This is an exquisite example of how good Ethiopian coffee can be. This natural processed Ethiopia Sidamo shows jammy berry notes, and is so full-bodied and complex words just can't do it justice. If you like a smooth, medium roasted coffee that evolves on the palate for hours then you have found your coffee! Available in 10 ounce vacuum sealed bags. Whole bean only. Will stay fresh unopened for up to one year.
