    Cupping Notes: Cherry, Strawberry, Earthy

    Ethiopian Sidamo coffee exhibits gentle almond nuances with balanced acidity and medium body. The sweet, wine-like aroma comes from the "Natural" sun-drying process. Ethiopian Sidamo is grown in the Kaffa region of the Sidamo province of Ethiopia. This is where coffee was first discovered over a thousand years ago. This Ethiopian Sidamo is in the same family as Ethiopian Yirgacheffe.

    Fine Ground: At a fine grind, coffee should be soft to the touch – slightly finer than granulated sugar.

    Espresso: Great espresso requires skill, patience and quality equipment. Without these things, and a proper grind, espresso can be thin and weak or over extracted and clog in the portafilter. The perfect grind is essential to reaching espresso nirvana; an intensely rich and creamy extraction with thick crema and well rounded flavor.
    Grind: Fine/Very Fine

    Aeropress: The Aeropress is a quick and efficient way to make flavorful, rich coffee with low acidity and bitterness. With specially designed micro-filter technology the Aeropress consistently provides some of the best coffee in just under 20 seconds.
    Grind: Fine/Medium

    Medium Ground: At a medium grind, coffee should be gritty like sand with no considerably large pieces.

    Auto Drip Pot: The Auto Drip style coffee maker is an efficient and hassle-free way to make a fresh pot. With the correct grind and water to coffee ratio, it IS possible to get a great cup of coffee using this method.
    Grind: Medium

    Chemex: The Chemex is an elegant brewing device that extracts only the purest, most flavorful coffee without any bitterness or sediment. Because of the incredible functionality and design, the Chemex, paired with Chemex Bonded Filters, create a pure coffee experience unlike any other.
    Grind: Medium/Coarse

    Coarse Ground: At a coarse grind, coffee is separated into large fragments similar to grained kosher salt.

    French Press: The French Press is a classic and easy way to prepare decadent and smooth coffee and can easily be converted to brew cold coffee. The coffee grounds and water are separated by a fine mesh plunger leaving only fresh brewed coffee after 5 short minutes.
    Grind: Coarse

    Toddy Cold Brew: The Toddy Cold Brew system is a simple and consistent way to extract a delicious and low-acid brew. Oils and fatty acids that would normally settle into hot coffee are eliminated leaving you with a perfectly balanced and smooth cup of iced coffee.
    Grind: Coarse

    rich and satisfying


    Sidamo beans make for a very rich, satisfying coffee experience. I use it to make espresso and find it hits the spot every time.

    Excellent Coffee


    I bought a two pound bag ground for drip for drinking at work with my colleagues who usually suffer with Folgers. As it was brewing everyone was complimenting the smell permeating the workplace. People who "don't ever drink coffee" tried it and enjoyed it. As the coffee "expert" I found the coffee very smooth with tons of flavor. Stood up well to added cream. In summary: I should have ordered a bigger bag. My shopping experience with FRC was, as usual, flawless.


    One of their lightest roast, allowing for a really smooth and very fruity taste.

    Was as listed. Very mellow taste with very little after taste. When I first received the product it was the wrong grind (it actually came as whole bean). I contacted the staff the next day and they sent out the correct grind and I had it the next day. Great service! Looking forward to ordering future products.


    I have depended on coffee for many years. As a submarine officer in the U.S. Navy, this coffee was shared amongst fellow submariners, and we all approved. It is much smoother than the average roast and does its job to keep you awake. The coffee issued to boats is subpar, so we frequently purchase our own. I have tried many different types from all sort of companies. This type is definitely near the top. The shipment was fast, and it's always great to get it free ( bought the 5lb bag).
