Coffee break meets tea time with this sweet, blueberry-scone Ethiopia Sidamo from Middlefork Roasters. The aroma is big, bright, and full of blueberry notes; in the cup, you’ll taste the same berry flavor wrapped in mild citrus and floral tea, with a nutty finish like almond shortbread. The balanced medium roast creates a deliciously robust flavor profile, making this Ethiopian a must-try for a fruity-floral espresso. Blueberry-lavender latte, anyone?
Sometimes called the chardonnay of the coffee world, fine Sidamo coffees are known for their delicate flavors, light florals and crisp citrus, enlivened with a swirl of winey fruit and a touch of earthiness. As for the blueberry notes? This is a sought-after characteristic that’s unique to Sidamo-- you won’t find this kind of flavor anywhere else. This is due in part to Sidamo being the highest growing region in Ethiopia, with altitudes of up to 2200 meters above sea level. Don’t forget that the coffee plant itself is native to Ethiopia, and these little beans are right at home. Sidamo beans are small, but dense, packed with sugars that transform so beautifully, when roasted, into big, bright, and flavorful cups like this one.
Start your morning right with this blueberry scone Sidamo, a medium-roast treasure from Middlefork Roasters and their well-developed, classic roasting style. We love the divine aroma, delicious profile of lavender, blueberries, and lemon, and the sweet, toasty finish like tea and cookies. Reserve a bag of Middlefork’s Ethiopia Sidamo, and sip your way into the wild blueberry yonder.

||★★★★★||★★★★★ 4.5 rating. FINALLY found a coffee that has long lasting taste (from first opening bag & first espresso) throughout its tenure in my house - almost 2 weeks; almost gone now. Flavor is smooth, chocolatety and hints of fruit. :-)))|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Very sweet middle of the road bean. Really enjoyed this.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Notes of chocolate and...crackers (in my mind that was what I could taste). It is smooth and a little bit savory, an OK coffee.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ This is a wonderful Ethiopian roast! Complex flavors when brewed in a pour over. One of my favorites from Bean Box.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ brewed with french press and chemex, nice balance, not bitter in the slightest and a nice mouthfeel|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ You can never go wrong with an Ethiopian! I love the full and fruity flavors|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Lemon scent and flavor really stand out. Great citrus flavor.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ I used this coffee to pull several shots. I had tried Middle Forks other $12 espresso recommended blend (full city espresso), I greatly prefer this over the full city. Both were enjoyable but this had some brighter nutty and citrus hints that I preferred. Highly recommend for espresso!!|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ I brewed this in a traditional drip maker and it made a smooth, balanced coffee for every day drinking with subtle citrus notes.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ This has been my favorite coffee so far from Bean Box. Dark but lots of complex flavors.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ I really liked this, both black and with cream/sugar. Complex--like having a fine wine at breakfast. Yum!|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Very nice Sidamo. The medium roast brought more body, but this variety tasted more green than that from Long Shoreman's Daughter. I would recommend LSDs if available.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ This coffee blew my mind. It was delicious black brewed in a french press but it's true potential was unleashed in espresso form. The best Latte I have ever had!!|

||★★★★★||★★★★★ A very unique and subtle dark roast that makes a perfect morning or afternoon cup of coffee. Slightly nutty with hints of chocolate and citrus. Excellent.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ I used this bean in a french press brew and found it to be heavy on the citrus. It had a smoky body more than a chocolate body I found. Overall, not a bad cup of coffee, but dark roasts aren't my preference. My fiance enjoyed it as a fan of dark roasts.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ This dark roast is easy to drink and a good way to start the day.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ For a dark roast, this coffee leans slightly more toward acidic than bitter. It has a strong, sweet, fruity aroma and flavor, with a hint of chocolate at the end.|
