Moving Beans Coffee Spotlight: Ethiopia Single Origin

Moving Beans Coffee Spotlight: Ethiopia Single Origin

Each coffee has its own story, and the story of Ethiopian coffee is particularly  special!

Our Ethiopian coffee capsules contain a unique Ethiopian single origin in its best and brightest form.

You’ll detect the refreshing floral and fruity tasting notes that Ethiopian coffees are renowned for.

The coffee cherries are grown and roasted with the greatest care, making the coffee’s delicate floral notes and fruity richness flow smoothly through the coffee and shine through the milk.

Ethiopia has three main coffee growing regions: Sidamo, Yirgacheffe, and Harrar. Each has its own distinct flavor profile. We use Yirgacheffe beans in our compostable Nespresso capsules, which have a sweet and fruity flavor and aroma, with a light to medium body. They are incredibly fragrant and are regularly rated and reviewed as the highest quality Arabica beans in the world. Since they are premium grade coffees they are often more expensive, but it's worth it!

Growing coffee in Ethiopia

As the 5th largest coffee producer in the world, Ethiopia has mastered the art of harvesting and processing the beans, and the flavor profiles are perfectly complex and delicious.

Ethiopia has the ideal growing environment for producing fantastic coffee. The high elevations and mountainous regions make for excellent growing conditions. There are more than a thousand varietals of coffee beans grown in Ethiopia. Because coffee trees grow naturally in Ethiopia, most of the coffees are under shade, among other plants, and without the use of agricultural chemicals. 

The Ethiopian coffee ceremony

Locally grown coffee beans are roasted on a flat iron pan over a small charcoal stove. After the roasting is finished, the beans are placed on a clay plate or straw mat, and the aromas are savored among the guests. The beans are then crushed by a stone block into small particles and brewed with boiling water and spices (cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom). The coffee is poured into small cups with sugar added, and incense is released into the air to cast away any evil spirits.

As a sign of respect, the oldest male of the group is served first, and the youngest child is in charge of serving. This tradition symbolizes the connection between all of the generations. Three rounds of coffee are served during the ceremony, and bread or popcorn is often enjoyed with it. The complete ceremony takes about one to two hours, and an invitation to the gathering signifies friendship and respect.
