The Djimmah zone, named after the former Kingdom of Djimmah, is found in the region of Oromia. Djimmah is also the name of the main city here, and is the largest city in south-western Ethiopia. The majority of coffee from this zone is naturally processed – that is, laid out on raised beds above the ground and left to dry in the sun (i.e. sun dried). Djimmah coffee sold from the ECX is commercial grade and is used frequently in Arabica blends.
Coffees from this region are reportedly best when washed. It has mild flavours of fruit and some sweet citrus. Bright citric acidity and a lovely silky body hold the coffee together. The finish is clean and satisfying.
