Privately owned communal wet mill in Danbi Uddo – Shakiso, collecting cherries from various smallholders.
This washing station is owned by Faysel Abdosh. It’s a brand new wet mill in Shakiso that opened in 2014. They are already producing 8 containers of washed coffees and 7 containers of naturals. The grades will vary, and we are selecting the grade 1’s that also meets our expectations on the flavour attributes. They generally do lot separation based on 150 bags of parchment, equal to 100 bags of green.
There are 850 smallholder farmers delivering tiny amounts of cherries daily to the wet miller. On average, farmers are having a farm size of less than 1 hectare. Most coffees are organic by default. Organic compost is common, pruning less common. A farmer can typically have less than 1500 trees pr hectare, and 1 tree is typically producing cherries equal to less than 100 - 200 grams of green coffee.

Plum & Almonds
Having spent some time living in Andean Ecuador, only a few hundred kilometers south from where finca Los Idolos is located in Nariño, Colombia in the south western corner of Colombia, I am reminded of the immense variety of geography, climates, ecosystems, and subsequent biodiversity of this area of the world. This coffee from Edgar Meneses at Finca Los Idolos has a plum-like acidity, gentle sweetness, and is well balanced by an almond and creamy yet clear and clean body.
Honey & Rose
That feeling when it’s still a little brisk outside, and you can’t help but sit in the bright sunshine, letting it warm you after the long dark winter. That is what this coffee is — it’s highly anticipated springtime, finally right around the corner. This cup contains honey sticky sweetness and rose; it’s balanced with a hint of refreshing bitters.
Everyone has their favorite. Be it Kvik Lunsj, Firkløver, or Helnøtt, we all have that one particular Norwegian chocolate bar that we gravitate towards. This tasty coffee from Finca Los Pirineos in El Salvador is those of you who can’t get enough Fruktnøtt in your life.
Dried Apricot & Spices
A wintry perfection of dried fruits and cardamom spice. Just what you need to warm up in cozy comfort.
Star Anise & Dark Syrup
Another stunning coffee from the Caballero Collective in Honduras. This coffee has the best of both worlds, with a lot of brightness and a lovely, full, syrupy body.
Milk chocolate & wild berries
Sold out. This gorgeous coffee from Honduras has so much to give.
