The Limmu Kossa terroir is located in the Oromo region, about 80 km north of the town of Jimma in the appellation of the same name. It is a natural coffee collected in a forest made up of various ancient species. The terroir has a rich soil and environment, which give the coffee its unique characteristics. It is prepared by the Dabessa brothers, two locally born boys who have built their coffee business up over the past ten years and now sell their production worldwide. The name “Limmu” is associated traditionally with the fully-washed coffee produced in the Jimma region, because it was the name of the region’s first washing station. The natural coffees were called “Jimma” coffees. Here we have paired the name Jimma with that of the Limmu Kossa terroir to better identify this natural, certified-organic forest coffee. Coffee production has increased the value of the terroir’s forest areas, and as a result is helping to preserve them. The farming and environmental preservation techniques employed are unique to the region and are another reason why our teams opted for this fruity coffee.
