In the fertile volcanic soil of the Sidamo region, farmers plant small coffee plots in their family gardens with coffee trees growing among the very foods that feed their families. This intercropping of coffee with food crops helps support biodiversity and replenishes the soil. However, mastering this unique ecosystem is only for the few and highly experienced farmers who can maintain the delicate process.
Of the thousands of coffees we encounter in our search for the best, only a precious few are deemed exceptional enough to become Starbucks Reserve® coffees, offered only for limited times at select stores.
