Story:
Ethiopia is widely known for being the true birthplace of coffee.  It is said that a goat herder was traveling through the Sidamo region when he noticed his goats chewing on strange cherries.  After realizing the goats' boost in energy and stamina, he figured that there was something special about these cherries, and so, coffee was born.  Today, Ethiopia is a huge leader in the specialty coffee industry, producing some of the wildest, most delicate and sought-after coffees in the world.  This organic, fair trade crop from the Sidamo region is a natural processed coffee with light berry notes and a pronounced pie spice aroma.
