About this Single Origin Coffee

Ethiopia is universally referred to as the birthplace of coffee and we last visited the Yirgacheffe region in February 2018 to taste first harvest selections.

This espresso coffee has all the signature tastes of a fine coffee from the Yirgacheffe region.

The Shifo Washing Station support a number of farmers whose crops are cultivated through subsistence farming with coffee grown in mineral-rich clay soil.

The climate is ideal for Specialty Coffee cultivation as it’s both high in altitude, and high in yearly average rainfall.

We measure our success not by our profit line, but by how much good we can do in the world. This is no more evident than in Ethiopia. Through our Suke Quto School project, up until now, 943 students have been learning in dusty, muddy and overcrowded rooms with one hole in the ground for a toilet.

We are major supporters of the building of eight new classrooms including four proper toilets as well as coffee trees for the local community. For more information on our social projects, check out our video below.
