Hirmata - Rainbow Market
This coffee comes from a small family farm near the Hantate Cooperative in the Sidama region of Ethiopia. Sidama lies in the famous Great Rift Valley that runs through Ethiopia and Kenya. Originally named Hirmata, this was a 19th century trading hub to Kaffa, the south western region of Ethiopia where coffee was born and to which it probably owes its name. This clean and balanced coffee is bright with distinct strawberry aromatics and sweet whipped cream and brown sugar notes. It’s comprised of uncatalogued and unique heirloom varietals that are grown on traditional small and family farms. We’re lucky enough to be able to buy this coffee directly from this region through an export company set up by Sextant to source traceable Ethiopian coffees.
