    Well, it's not Guatemalan Coffee or anything but that is a different can of worms!

    A lot of coffee lovers are crazy about Ethiopian coffee, but many regular coffee drinkers don't appreciate them. It's more floral and tea-like. Most regular people just want a coffee that's strong and has low acid, which is the opposite of Yirgacheffe.

    Nailed it - Go natural and more pronounced berries/fruit light to medium roast will bring them out where a dark it don't matter

    Ethiopia is in the green belt where altitude and climate are best for growing coffee plant, also was where coffee was first found there and still to this day most Ethiopia coffee is from wild plants

    It's one of the places where we speculate coffee probably was first found. Other places also somewhat credibly make this claim. I like to think it was found in Ethiopia but would not say with certainty.

    I would say it's my second favorite after Kenya AA. I love my coffee to have the bright fruit flavors that elevate the coffee from being the standard chalk bitter taste that most chain coffee has.

    Where do you buy Ethiopian coffee? I mean with proper guarantees that it's from there and that it's reasonably fresh.

    Pretty much any reputable local roaster will have some. That is as proper a guarantee as I have ever needed or wanted.
