This coffee is somewhat complex, with a citric to tannic acidity. The honey fragrance mingles with top notes of peach and apricot to produce an aftertaste that is clean with a refined fruited sweetness.
This is the area considered to be the birthplace of coffee. Picture frisky goats frolicking around a bemused Shepard, scratching her head in contemplation while trying to chew a coffee cherry. Typically, it is the Robusta bean that grows wild, but in the forests of the Kaffa region of Ethiopia Coffea Arabica grew wild. Coffee is "Bun" or "Buna" in Ethiopia, so Coffee Bean is quite possibly a poor anglicized interpretation of "Kaffa Bun". Coffea Arabica was also found in the Harar
region quite early, either brought from the Kaffa forests or from closer
areas around the Sudan border. It is entirely possible that slaves
taken from the forests chewed coffee cherry and spit out the seeds, thus
spreading it into the Harar region, through which the Arab slave trade route passed.
