Here’s how we brew this delicious cryptid twist on the year of the rabbit—Year of the Fellowlope by Brandywine!
This honey-processed coffee was grown by smallholder farmers around the Koke kebele in Ethiopia’s acclaimed Yirgacheffe region, and it’s brimming with purple fruit and floral notes.
We tasted rose, violet, purple grape, and pluot, with a milk chocolate and cotton candy fragrance, a juicy acidity, and a floral honey viscosity.

Brew Recipe for Pour-Over
Using Stagg [X] Dripper
24.5g of Ethiopia Koke by Brandywine to make 350g of coffee.
350g of Water
1. Measure and grind coffee
Measure out 24.5g coffee beans and grind them on a medium to a medium-fine coarse setting. We used setting 4 on Ode with Gen 2 Burrs, which is about 6 on Ode with Gen 1 Burrs.
2. Heat water and rinse filter
Heat water to 205°F and rinse your filter before putting your coffee grounds in.
3. Pour 47g for the bloom
Fully saturate your coffee grounds with twice as much water as coffee, and allow about 40 seconds for the bloom.
4. Continue pouring in 3 stages
After the bloom, pour to 103g, then 100g, and finish at 100g. The total brew time should be about 3:30 mins.
5. Decant into your favorite mug and enjoy!
Look out for the incredible flavors of milk chocolate, cotton candy fragrance, and floral honey.
