The catchment area for Ethiopian Mocha Djimmah is the largest in Ethiopia. These coffees are well known for their body and acidity. Djimmah grows at an altitude of 1341 – 1829 m. This is an ideal climate and the plants are well protected by the larger forest trees which provide shade from the midday sun and preserve the moisture in the soil.
Djimmah Coffee is grown in the Illubabor and Kaffa regions of Ethiopia at elevations from 4,400 to 6,000 feet above sea level within the biggest catchment area in Ethiopia, an area that produces and exports about 60,000 tons of coffee each year. Djimmah is also called Jimma Coffee.
A unique coffee, thought to be the variety closest in flavour to the original wild plant. Its mild character is offset by a subtle gamey aftertaste.
Rich, earthy, with notes of dark cocoa, walnut. Full of flavour, low acidity and good chocolate aftertaste. - Medium roast.
