Two Summer Stunners

 
 

We are proud to add two fresh, vibrant coffees to our line up!

Ethiopia Shoye

This washed coffee is comprised of lots cultivated on many small family-owned farms that belong to the Shoye Cooperative in the Sidamo region of southern Ethiopia. The Shoye is made up of indigenous heirloom cultivars that have been passed down for generations. We only have 2 bags of this delicious coffee! In our initial cupping we found a delicate sweet floral characteristic, with peach, nectarine, and sweet orange acidity, and spicy black pepper and black tea notes. 

Elevation: 1800-2200 meters above sea level (msl)
Varieties: Heirloom varieties

 

Zambia Kateshi - Zambia Kateshi comes from two farms-- Kateshi and Isanya-- located in the rich farmland of northern Zambia. The farms grow coffee at both locations and mill it themselves at Kateshi. This AA grade coffee was our first experience with coffee grown in Zambia. We found it to bring so many unique and interesting characteristics, and are so stoked to share it with you! In the cup, the coffee brings juicy acidity well balanced by its heavy and smooth body. We taste lots of tropical fruits, and find a sweet herbaceous quality blending with tangy citrus acidity. Flavor notes include pineapple, melon, pomegranate, tomato jam, malted chocolate, almond and brown sugar.

Elevation: 1340-1500 msl
varieties: Catimor
