A juicy, elegant Ethiopian coffee. Sweet aromatics invade your nose as you open this bag coffee. At first this coffee has notes of lemon candy but as it cools the lemon turns into more of a tangerine citrus. This coffee is uniquely 74112. 74112 is a locally selected Ethiopia Heirloom variety that was developed in the 1970’s at the Jimma Agricultural Research Center (JARC) for its resistance to the coffee berry disease. This variety begins with “74” to indicate their cataloging and selection in 1974.
Variety 74112 originates in the Metu-Bishari forest and was released in 1979 for its disease resistance and yield potential. Its trees are small and compact.
