Ethiopia is sometimes described as the birthplace of coffee. It was in the forests of the Kaffa region that Coffeea Arabica was first grown, and these were traded and transported around the world by 16th and 17th century missionaries.

The Port of Mocha in neighbouring Yemen lent its name to coffee from this region, as it became a major trading post for coffee going into Europe and Asia. It is also from here that mocha (a chocolate and coffee drink) was named, possibly due  to the chocolaty notes present in many Ethiopian coffees.

Pollards say: This Djimmah is fairly typical of a traditionally dry-processed Ethiopian coffee. It is earthy and rustic with a full body and bags of very ripe fruit and cocoa. However, there are also some lovely fresh pine and lemon meringue pie aromatics that really enliven the brew.
