About your grower
Cup score: 85+
Limu is a trade name for medium-sized coffee beans which come from Soutwest/Southcentral Ethiopia with a distinctive round shape and green colour.
The area is forested, with plenty of water and rich soil.
With a similar environment and cultivation conditions as the neighbouring areas, Yigacheffe and Sidamo, this coffee has the same bright citric vibrancy and fragnant floral aromatic notes.
This comes from Mrs. Heleanna Georgali, 4th generation producer.
Heleanna has done a remarkable job of continuing her father’s legacy in Moplaco. Under her leadership, Moplaco is constantly developing and evolving, in order to produce coffee of increasingly good quality, despite the challenges that are constantly emerging for the Ethiopian producers.

**terroir= In theory, terroir is an umbrella term that combines all the different factors that influence wine: the impact of the climate, soil, topography, humidity, rainfall, sunshine, soil chemicals but also human intervention on the cultivation of grapes, when this is done in a traditional way which is respectful of the ecosystem.
