A deep relationship with the people of Ethiopia is the foundation upon which our company is built. Before there was coffee, there were the friends and family we have come to know and love in Ethiopia. Honor and and transparency are values we hold deeply. We are passionate about seeing the coffee industry display these values, and we believe genuine relationship-building is key to the process.
Our current selection of Direct Trade, Single Origin Specialty Coffees are sourced directly from the Dara and Alo regions of Sidama, Ethiopia.
