On the Naming of the Coffee
At The Crackpots Coffee Roaster, we always try to help beginners and advanced drinkers alike to understand more about coffees. One of our efforts is to explain the various cryptic names of coffees which could be confusing.
Here’s a breakdown of this coffee:
Ethiopia, officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, is a country in the Horn of Africa.
Ethiopia is said to be where all coffees come from, and coffee production in Ethiopia is a longstanding tradition which dates back dozens of centuries.
A regional state in Southern Ethiopia, famous for coffee production. It used to include the popular coffee zones, Yirgacheffe and Guji.
A long-standing product designed by Pebble Coffee, focusing on classic washed coffees from Sidama region.
Natural in coffee usually means that the coffee is sun-dried without removing the flesh and skins of the cherries. This processing method enhances the fruitiness of the coffee but is prone to over-fermentation.
G1 = Grade 1. Ethiopian coffees are graded from 1 to 9. Grade 1-2 are considered specialty grades, Grade 3-9 are considered "commercial".
