The heirloom variety is grown primarily in Ethiopia, the country of origin of the coffee, and grows in the forest gardens of the country.
There are now over 1,000 different varieties of heirloom coffee, but the wild cultivation method means that a coffee can rarely be assigned to a specific variety. For this reason, coffee is often grouped under the generic term 'heirloom'. Differences are defined by region of origin. Depending on the region, a regional heirloom coffee may therefore have a floral or a berry core.
Heirloom coffees have become known for their naturalness and strong character. The cup profile is a colourful mixture and is composed of floral, berry, lemony as well as chocolaty notes.
