In honor of my visit this week to Ethiopia, the birthplace of Coffea Arabica, I am republishing a number of my special reports on this awesome country and its wonderful countries. Amesege’nallo Ethiopia for bringing coffee to the world!
Today is my birthday, and it only seems appropriate to say Happy Birthday to myself with a truly outstanding coffee, and nothing beats a coffee from the origin of all origins of coffee: One of the most delightful and delicious coffees straight from the south-western coffee lands of Ethiopia where Arabica coffee first was discovered growing in the wild.
Thanks to the legend of Kaldi and his dancing goats, this is where coffee was first discovered around the 6th Century according to most historical accounts; My coffee today is an espresso blend from the Kaffa region sold by the Kaldi’s Coffee house chain in Addis Ababa. Bold and powerful aroma, balanced acidity yet smooth and simply delicious!
SpillingTheBeans is delighted to wish all our friends, followers and coffee lovers a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR and all the very best for 2015 with this wonderful coffee from Ethiopia – the Birth Place of coffee!
