Ethiopia is a country thought to be origin of mankind, and also in our case of coffee. Ethiopia has a large domestic coffee consumption which is explained well by the story related to the famous “Kaldi”, the goat herder who first discovered coffee’s stimulant qualities.
Many coffee species are indigenous to Ethiopia. Coffee is produced in a number of regional zones to the west and south of the capital Addis Ababa, most famously Sidamo and Yirgacheffe, and these days also in the Northern Amhara Region coffee cultivation is starting to take root following the successful launch some years back.
If you think of a specialty coffee, Ethiopia is The source. New regulations have made direct purchasing possible and Sinopia Coffee provide you the entire range, from single origin coffee, specialty coffee and commercial coffee.
The diversity of Ethiopian Arabica coffee varieties means that we find a diversity of flavor, even between farms with similar growing conditions and processing. Processing methods also contribute to end quality.
Due to these facts, a reliable partner that has understanding for the local conditions, as well as the end consumer is required, and that is what you will find in Sinopia Coffee. We source our coffees from our own small out-grower farms as well as from the commodity exchange - coffee's from all over Ethiopia. After grading and preparing, coffee is then exported all over the world.
