A Single Origin from Ethiopia
While Summer may be fading away we still have plenty of bright coffees arriving, with our latest Ethiopian a returning favourite from Uraga. Complex, floral and tropical we find this perfectly suited to filter brews with tasting notes of Mango, Jasmine and Peach.

The Yabitu washing station, set in the town of the same name, processes the coffee of local smallholders growing at over 2,000 metres. With more than 400 local farmers harvesting very small areas, the washing station provides the infrastructure to select, separate and control all post-harvest processing. The greater collective input increases the production volume and quality, also leading to better prices for the community.
With the recent liberalisation of the Ethiopian coffee market, the Guji zone and sub-region of Uraga has emerged as one of the most consistently interesting and expressive areas of production. The local heirloom varieties, Dega and Wolisho, are descendant from the surrounding forests and the washed processing here is precisely controlled for intensity and clarity of flavour. The impressive altitude contributes to a slow and even drying process, a key factor in the Guji reputation for consistency and longevity.
