THE STORY OF LIMU COFFEE
CULTURAL SIGNIFICANCE OF COFFEE
The woman of the home traditionally performs the coffee ceremony, which in some homes occurs three times a day. It is also performed when welcoming visitors into their homes or for various celebrations.
There is also a spiritual significance, as according to Islamic tradition, a person’s spirit transforms during the ceremony due to coffee’s known spiritual qualities.
AUTHENTIC AFRICAN VIBES
Combining traditional Ethiopian roasting craft with modern equipment, our roaster in Addis Ababa, Solomon, makes sure our beans perfectly reveal their aromas, bringing authentic African vibes to your cup.
Limu Coffee has fruity notes of a peach and bergamot origin, with a long-lasting and pleasant aftertaste, making it a cup to savour.
FARMING & PROCESSING
We do direct trade and source our beans from the Kata Muduga Farmer’s Union in Jimma, Ethiopia. The union is certified for organic farming, gives the farmers security, regular training, and guarantees a fair allocation.
Previously, the region had not been known for producing high-quality coffee. Through cooperatives, the region has established itself as a premium coffee producer. Nowadays, their Limu coffee is classified as a specialty coffee and coffee farmers receive premium prices for the top-class quality.
ROASTING IN ADDIS ABABA
Coffee in its most authentic form, and fully produced in the countries of origin. Our roaster Solomon has more than 16 years of roasting experience and ensures our beans reveal their aromas in perfection. Solomon makes sure that our Limu Coffee meets and exceeds high standards of specialty coffee.
Roasting at origin leaves more value in coffee-producing countries. Let’s break old-fashioned values chains together.
