SABA has a floral aroma, smooth-bodied and sweet bright flavor with pronounced lemon notes. The profile of this coffee is unique in the world and is only found in the Sidama region, with the most intense examples originating in Yirgachefe.
The fabulous taste of our coffee owes everything to the perfect environment in which it grows.
Our coffee beans are the indigenous heirloom Arabica varieties, grown at high altitudes with ample rainfall, a near perfect climate, good fertility and natural planting conditions. These are the contributing factors, which make our coffees so great.
Which roast profile should I choose?
Only the best and delicate coffee beans, whose unique aroma is preserved, can be roasted light. These are the few types of coffee that are roasted light and most of them are Ethiopian varieties. Light roasts usually have a high acidity and less body – perfect for coffee nerds.
Medium roasted coffee is slightly darker than light roasted coffee. It usually has a slightly more rounded taste, but has also lost some of its acidity. The coffee is suitable for french press, pour-over and coffee machine.
Coffee beans that are dark roasted have usually lost their acidity and have a higher bitterness. When dark, the coffee loses many of its volatile aromas, but in turn, it is more rounded. Here you can not go wrong – the coffee is suitable for both french press, coffee machine and espresso.
