It is said that the Arabica shrub is native to Ethiopia where it grew in the wild, and it is assumed that the word "coffee" derives from the name of the Ethiopian region of Kaffa.
The Ethiopian Sidamo coffee of this area is always grown in the so-called "coffee gardens", that is, plots where the coffee grows in the shade of other plants. Often they are plants of tobacco, banana, spices, tea and others, a system that allows the coffee to capture extraordinary aromatic sensations.
This coffee was tasted, for this evaluation, extracted in espresso at 94 °, with an extraction of 25 ml in 26 seconds. The degassing of the coffee took 48 hours.
The cream is nutty with marked darker shades. On the olfactory examination, there are very evident sensations of citrus, cardamom, tobacco and nutmeg; if sweetened, the coffee finds notes of candied citrus. To the taste, the coffee has a light body and a marked acidity (one of the most evident in the world of coffee, also thanks to the washing process), the bitterness is very light, and the aftertaste is truly elegant.

The Caffèlab project was born as a collective, a group of people with different skills, different past and present but the same passion: quality coffee.
The world of coffee is changing. In recent years we have been witnessing a strong cultural evolution of coffee. Some consumers are beginning to realize that this product can be a universe of varieties and aromas and that a conscious taste can give us extraordinary sensations.
We wanted to make our blends through experimentation, because looking for quality does not mean fossilizing on a taste, but going in search of it. We have also started to use different extraction methods, because coffee is not just about espresso. Finally, we understood that roasting can totally change the taste of a coffee and that you can also experiment by roasting your own coffee, at home, at different levels, with different profiles.
This is why we have created Caffèlab: to allow you to create your own personalized coffee blend, through our configurator, making available the best single origins and professional equipment.
