Ethiopia Sidamo, Zabu Cofee – review

I LOVE IT! It’s so good I cannot have more than 3 cups of espresso each day. So good! Now, you need to know that I really, really love heavy, intense, bitter but not acidic coffees so if you do follow my recommendations keep that in mind. It’s a very strong type of coffee beans and deserves a special place on my shelf. I was really sad to see my small 227g pack of Zabu Coffee go! It was very special. I met a coffee farmer born in Ethiopia once – most of what I know about coffee farming I have learned from his few hours of sessions and I will never forget his words: “Real coffee comes only from Ethiopia”. Well, of course, it’s subjective but I think that the more I taste various types of beans, beans of different geographical origin, I do like African coffees the most. But my journey has just started so I am yet to discover so much more and back up my opinions a bit later. For now, I am testing Zabu’s monthly deliveries and I am really happy with their choices of monthly features.

My rating:

  • aroma: 9/10
  • acidity: 5/10
  • body: 9/10
  • flavour/aftertaste 9/10
  • overall rating: 5/5 stars
