Ethiopia Limu Fair-Trade
|Roaster Location:||Americus, Georgia|
|Coffee Origin:||Limu growing region, west-central Ethiopia|
|Review Date:||September 2002|
A rather aggressive roast contributes distinct charred notes, but they are richly charred notes, with a leathery twist and a tickle of dry fruit. The astringent finish is pleasantly complicated by dry chocolate.
Certified organically grown and Fair-Traded, meaning small-holding farmers have been paid an economically sustainable price for this coffee. Cafe Campesino is a coffee roasting company that also is a leading member of Cooperative Coffees, an innovative green-coffee-buying cooperative of small American roasters that specializes in importing coffees from their counterpart cooperatives in growing countries.

Who Should Drink It
The coffee's distinction is largely lost in the roast, but the roast itself provides the mildly burned, bittersweet cup with a hint of complication that many coffee drinkers enjoy.
