1) ETHIOPIA GELANA ABAYA GEISHA NATURAL

Sourcing coffee never easy if it is from Ethiopia, especially when we are talking about specialty coffee. The geography, economy, political and society add few layers of challenge to sourcing traceable coffee from Ethiopia. The best that we can do is to understand how coffee is produce in Ethiopia. Most of the smallholders farmers owned 1 or 2 hectares land to grow coffee. Rather than become main source of income, coffee always seen as additional income stream. Normally smallholders coffee farmers rely on wet mill to further process their coffee.

Across coffee growing region in Ethiopia, there will be few wet mill operated in same area. Farmers are open to send cherries to preferred washing station or nearest washing station. Most of the coffee will be brand based on washing station or region. Depend on washing station some of them take initiative to separate certain lot based on certain criteria such as single farmer lot, varietal or process. This is where specialty coffee value start to become more significant in Ethiopia coffee production.

However, all coffee will still need to be purchased through Ethiopia Coffee Exchange(ECX) since coffee is commodity regulated by Ethiopia government. In recent years, the government has allowed direct trade between buyer and seller within short window time that encourage better coffee trading. This has open opportunities for specialty coffee buyer to have access on coffee traceability. Other than that the coffee practically purchased through ECX will only have minimum coffee information and trade based on quality.

This is one rare gem come from Ethiopia, Geisha Gelana Abaya come from Gelana Abaya Woreda in Sidama. We choose natural process to showcase natural origin character. This is our second natural Ethiopia Geisha and expect fruity and mixed berries with delicate flavour profile of Ethiopia coffee.

Cupping Notes: Strawberry, Blueberry, Peach, Apricot, Earl Grey Tea, Chocolate, Maple Syrup

2) BOLIVIA DON CARLOS CATURRA FULLY WASHED 

Love for specialty coffee is endless, the thrill discovering new coffee, new people, new culture or new origin is make is such wonderful thing. Back then when we start roasting Bolivia it always deliver it own charm. Soft and vibrant yet packed with lots of love through taste notes, Bolivia immediately has it own place in our heart as coffee roaster. Love is a routine, it can't be seasonal and we choose to get our second selection from Bolivia which is more suitable for daily drink. Represent from Agricafe, Bolivia a microlot coffee from Don Carlos Caturra with fully washed process.

Talking about Bolivia specialty coffee, a figure like Agricafe is an icon. Agricafe is a Bolivian family business which produces coffee from its own farms and sources high quality micro lots from small producers in the regions of Los Yungas and Santa Cruz. As pioneers within South American specialty coffee, Agricafe initially entered the coffee industry in 1986, when Pedro Rodriguez decided to pursue his passion for agriculture.

Over 36 years later, he has seen and lived the ups and downs of Bolivian coffee and is now working along with his daughter Daniela and his son Pedro Pablo. The trio runs the company with the idea of restoring and improving Bolivian coffee by launching producer training programs and planting own farms across the above mentioned regions.

Carlos is one of the longest staff of Agricafe and to honour his service to company they offered him a partnership on new farm which now called as Don Carlos. This is beautiful harmony relationship to stick side by side growing specialty coffee and finally has his own farm. We picked caturra lot from his farm with fully washed process to showcase the flavour clarity of his coffee. What an amazing journey of Bolivia coffee growers, create better life through coffee.
