Laughing Man Ethiopia Sidama K-Cups Review

LM EthSidama KCup

During a recent trip to shop for single K-Cups at the Keurig Retail Store, we noticed some new offerings from Laughing Man and today we’re checking out another one of their new single origin coffees… Laughing Man Ethiopia Sidama K-Cups. Billed as a mix of heirloom variety beans found on various coffee farms from the land known as “the birthplace of coffee”, this light roast promises to yield a delicate floral aroma with citrus flavors of bergamot and lime. The lid topper claims this coffee is aromatic, complex & elegant. Let’s have at it and find out. 

Brewing this coffee resulted in light aromas of molasses with a subtle spiciness hidden underneath. Upon first sip we definitely noticed the sour citrusy notes as we got strong notes of lime followed by very faint hints of bergamot in the finish. We were detecting some lemon notes in the foreground but could have been confusing that with the lime notes. One thing’s for sure, the longer you savour this coffee, the more complexities start to emerge. So far the description on the info card has been spot-on. 

So, let’s see… aromatic? We guess it could be considered as such. Complex? Definitely. Elegant? Meh… we’ll leave that one up to you. We suppose if you served it in fancy bone china cups & saucers with 24k gold trim, it could be considered elegant but when it comes to good coffee, any regular coffee mug will do just fine for us. 

The farmers who source the beans for Laughing Man certainly know what they’re doing and the quality in the final brew shows this in spades. The only other company which we can recall producing such a high quality of coffee across its product range is Marley Coffee and we’re proud to say that Laughing Man appears to be another star player in the world of premium quality coffees. We can’t wait to see what new single origin coffees they’ll be releasing next. 

So, what do we think? Is this one worth checking out? 


We would like to note that we found the Laughing Man Ethiopia Sidama K-Cups at the Keurig Retail Store in the Burlington Mall (Burlington, MA) and purchased them on our own for the purpose of this review. The Laughing Man Ethiopia Sidama K-Cups will work in all K-Cup Brewers including Keurig 2.0.

We would also like to thank our Single Serve Coffee correspondent SH for writing this review.
