Djimmah Coffee

 

Ethiopian Djimmah coffee is probably the oldest type of coffee in the world. This is the type of coffee that most of the people in Ethiopia regularly drink. Djimmah has a tart flavor with a hint of spice. It is the true Arabica coffee.

 

Ethiopian coffee is one of the most popular coffee origins in the world. Black Lion Organic Coffee is established in Ethiopia and in Norway and we are a direct supplier of Ethiopian organic coffee. With our export license and our permanent seat at the Ethiopian coffee stock exchange ECX, we have access to export a full range of Ethiopian coffee including Harrar, Limu, Yirgacheffe, Sidamo, Djimmah and Ghimbi Coffee.

 

We collaborate with several coffee farmers and washing stations in Limu, Yirgacheffe and Sidamo, so our importers have the possibility to trace the coffee. The farm in Guji offers specialised quality coffee with over 20 years’ experience. The farm selects only the best coffee before they process the coffee beans. Guji has its own washing stations, storage and dry mill, which enables us to trace and follow the entire process. The Guji farm also has an organic certificate. 

  Sidamo Coffee

 

Ethiopian Sidamo coffee has a mild, mellow and somewhat fruity flavor. Sidamo coffee comes from the Oromia, or Sidamo, region of the country.

Wollega (Nekempte) Coffee

 

Like Ghimbi, Wollega coffee is grown in western Ethiopia. Wollega is a medium to bold coffee that is known for its delicious fruity taste. The bean is a greenish brown color. Wollega is often added as a blend to other coffees, but it can stand on its own as a satisfying drink.
