    Description

    Awash River is a curated coffee sourced from smallholder farmers serviced by the river Awash in the Sidamo region of southern Ethiopia. These farmers rely on the great river and its many tributaries to cultivate coffee and sustain their communities.
    Ethiopia is also the birthplace of the arabica coffee tree. As farmers started to harvest the wild forest coffee of Southern Ethiopia they in turn began to cultivate them on their own land. Nevertheless, wild coffee can still be found throughout Ethiopia and is represented by thousands of distinct varieties, many of which are still cultivated by farmers in Sidamo to this day.

    Region

    The Sidamo and Yirgacheffe regions have developed a reputation for some of the most sought after coffee in the world. With the river as a rich source of clean water; The combination of high altitude, fertile soils, and abundant sunshine provides the ideal conditions for growing Arabica coffee. Traditional Arabica varieties, which still grow wild in Ethiopia, contribute to a unique and beautiful cup profile typified by notes of tropical and stone fruit and light florals.
