What Makes Limu Coffee Unique?
- Limu is one of the zones in the Oromia coffee-growing regions of southwest Ethiopia. Limu coffee grows at an elevation of 1500-1900 MSL producing medium-sized beans with a characteristic round shape and a greenish colour. It is generally washed and it has a similar cupping profile to Sidama and Yirgacheffe coffee having a citric acidity, with soft berry undertones and chocolate-floral notes. The flavour is generally characterized by a balanced and clean cup.
- Limu coffee is regarded as premium gourmet coffee with its distinctive terroir and variety. The coffee brew has a well-balanced mouth feel and vibrant floral overtones. It is balanced, sweet, and slightly spicy with pleasant wine-like characteristics. Some Limmu coffee also has floral and stone fruit notes.
- Limu is noted for washed and dry processed coffee of higher grades. It also carries a reputation for producing better coffee probably because of better agronomic standards and good processing, well-established farms and a good number of washing stations.
