A perfect start to the Ethiopian espresso.
Nekemte is a town in the Wallaga region of western Ethiopia, which gives its name to this coffee designation. Close to the Sudanese border, this region is marked by a rich environment in which coffee has been cultivated for several centuries. Coffee was first consumed within the family circle, then the external demands of the late 19th and early 20th centuries played a role in the development of coffee growing in this region.
Coffees called Nekemte in Oromo, also called Lekempti in Amharic (Ethiopian national language) are plain coffees with a fruity and spicy profile. The beans are normally elongated and called "long berry".
