Ethiopia is a relatively new origin for us, but one that we love, despite it being an incredibly complex country to source coffee from.

All of the Ethiopian coffees that we purchase are selected on the basis of their exceptional cup profile first and foremost, and this drives our purchasing decisions each year. We look for exceptional washed lots that are complex, elegant, floral and tea like. We also buy well processed naturals when we across them, and look for lots that are intensely sweet, rich and fruit driven, but clean and balanced. This year we have purchased several washed and natural lots from Yirgacheffe and Guji, Sidamo, that are traceable back to the washing station.
