This Sidama appellation (also called Sidamo in some translations) is divided into 4 areas distinguished simply by the letters A, B, C and D. Each of these four areas offers a specific cup profile. The Sidama A appellation is the one that offers a Sidama-type profile on account of its sweet cup with notes of yellow fruit (apricot, peach).
Each is linked to a specific geographical area delimited by administrative divisions. The Sidama A appellation extends to:
- the Guji area, comprising the woreda districts of OdoShakiso, Uraga, Hambela, Kercha, Adola and Anassora; and
- the Sidama area, comprising the districts of Bensa, Chire and Aroressa.
