This coffee is from a Cooperative in the Agaro region in Western Ethiopia. The Cooperative is relatively young being established in 2010, they have managed to establish a strong management who have succeeded in producing a high level of quality from year one. This area has over the last couple of years began to earn a reputation for a distinctive profile that is not seen elsewhere. With intense flavour and complexity.

Hazelnut & Mandarin
Sold out. Creamy chocolate, thick and rich with super sweet mandarin and stone fruit.
Jasmine & peach
Sold out. Peaches & cream, in the way only an Ethiopian coffee can bring you all of the peaches and cream. Jasmine flowers and intricate bitters that stimulate your senses to finish it off. We’ve immensely enjoyed coffee from the Boji wet mill in the Kochere region on multiple occasions and are thrilled to bring it back for another run.
Roasted walnut & grape
This coffee is technically a blend, but it’s not your average blend. By purchasing this coffee, you are directly supporting 15 small coffee pickers. You are supporting fair pay, legal and safe health care, and pension payments.
Nectarine & Dark Chocolate
Sold out. We taste 80% dark chocolate and stone fruit, specifically nectarine, along with some creamy & bitter walnut.
Lingonberry & Cream
It’s as though a human-sized raspberry is running full speed ahead at you, into your mouth - you’re a little freaked out by it, but then it gives you a massive sweet juicy hug and all is well with the world. So sugar cane sweet, bold and bright. Uniquely fresh crop Kenyan in the very best way.
Earl Grey & Rosehip
Sold out. It’s calm with a lovely lightly bitter black tea aftertaste, has a grounded structure, and it doesn’t have that super typical natural funkiness (though definitely still a natural). There's fruit as you'd expect: papaya and lime. We're happy to share this easy drinking coffee as we roll into summertime.
