Aroma is malty and biscuity. The coffee itself is very smooth and quite light, but not a weak taste
Although full of chocolatey, malty flavours, this is very different from the South and Central American coffees that I usually love. It has a brighter, cleaner "finish" than these, rather heavier, coffees. A really great coffee and also very modestly priced, so I'll definitely be back for more.
Simply the best coffee we have been ever drinking. We are now buying it for years, very delicious and delicate in flavour, perfectly roasted with no bitterness on your plate. I would highly recommend it to everyone to try, believe me no other coffee will test the same… we have days when we run out of it and are forced to drink different brand for few days till the supplies come and no coffee is the same!!

This coffee is delicious, I love the smooth taste, full bodied but never bitter. I always buy Ethiopian coffee as it is my my opinion the best tasting coffee. I am drinking, more coffee now than ever so I have been purchasing the larger packs. Coffee Real fast delivery makes my experience the best.

Agree with everyone here - this is just such a lovely, smooth, coffee - easily drinkable


I really enjoy the flavour of this superb Ethiopian coffee, in lockdown I seem to be getting through the bag of beans even more quickly than usual. Being some help to the lovely people of Ethiopia who need our help at the moment makes it taste even better.


Its so easy to buy from Coffee Real and this coffee is great.


A delicious coffee, great to drink and easy to get delivered by Coffee Real. Well done.

I love the aroma and taste of this mild coffee, and there is simple ordering and quick delivery of the beans as a bonus.

If I hadn't had Djimmah elsewhere I would have been completely impressed with this. This is a lovely, smooth coffee and extremely drinkable. However, I have to admit to having had better (Djimmah is a Queen of coffees in my opinion). Not quite as nuanced as some brews, but definitely a worthy source of a bean that can be hard to find.

Additional Information

This natural processed coffee is grown in south western Ethiopia in the regions of Kaffa and Illubabor. Although these areas account for around 50% of the coffee exported from Ethiopia (most of it commercial grade) they also produce a restricted amount of specialty grade coffee which is mainly forest harvested.

Forest harvested basically means it is self sown and grows under the shade of natural forest trees. Forest coffee offers a wide diversity for selection and breeding so as to have plant stock selected for disease resistance, high yields and top quality in terms of aroma as well as flavour. Forest coffee accounts for about 10% of the total coffee production in Ethiopia.

We have cupped many coffees from Djimmah before and have always been disappointed by the flavour distractions in the cup in terms of earthy or musty flavours which generally come from no care or attention given to picking or processing. This forest harvested lot is very different.
