Coffees from Ethiopia, the birthplace of coffee!

Carrie Masek

Ethiopia Lake Abaya is back!  We have new crop Lake Abaya, both washed and naturally processed.  Also, for the first time ever, G1 and practically perfect, wild and wonderful Ethiopia Harrar. Order a roast or two, and discover why Ethiopia is one of our favorite coffee origins.

Ethiopia Lake Abaya G1: A "practically perfect" coffee, as sweet as Kona, with an intense floral aroma and delicious chocolate richness.

Naturally Processed Ethiopia Lake Abaya, G1:  A "practically perfect" naturally processed, full bodied coffee with a silky mouth feel, intense floral aroma and complex flavor: Plum wine, dark roasted almonds and Bakers Chocolate. Add a lingering finish that grows sweeter as the coffee cools for a unique treat from the birthplace of coffee.

Ethiopia Harrar G1: A wild and wonderful coffee, clean and complex, marked by a combination of an intensely sweet aroma, the flavor of sunbaked persimmons and a rich, lingering chocolate finish.
