Djimmah is a coffee producing region in the highlands west of Sidamo. Washed coffee from the area is traditionally called Limu, and unwashed coffees are called Djimmah. The region is sparsely populated, and coffee from this area has herbal flavors and a delicate green tea aroma. By global standards, farms in Limu are small. But by Ethiopian standards, they are quite large—each farmer owns up to 2 hectares of land; which is almost double the size of farms in other Ethiopian regions. Farmers take advantage of the extra space and intercrop with vegetables that they sell at local markets.
This year’s coffee just landed and is every bit of the quality we have come to know.
