A tea-like tribute to coffee’s Ethiopian origins by Black & White.
This year-round offering from Black & White is named as a tribute to coffee’s first origin: a washed Ethiopian that hits the delicate tea and citrus notes we love. We tasted milk chocolate, dried apricot, baking spices, citrus, honey, lemon, black tea, and sugarcane, with a floral aroma and tea-like body.

Every coffee we share has been tasted and recommended by our expert Tasting Panel who have years of experience in specialty coffee. We cast a wide net, trying hundreds of coffees, keeping an open mind to new regions, processes, and roasters, and going through many rounds of cupping. If there was an easier way of choosing each coffee, we wouldn’t want to do it. For exclusive weekly coffee suggestions from our panel, join Fellow Drops!
Start with a 1:2 ratio and a brew time around 24 seconds. Funkier coffees may require a longer ratio, sometimes up to 1:3.
We tend to brew at or above 205°F with a total brew time of 3 minutes or under. We roast to maximize sweetness and solubility, so you can apply your favorite recipe!
We like to wait 14 days post-roast to brew our coffees at our cafes: the cup’s clarity will increase over time.
Black & White was founded in 2017 by two U.S. Barista Champions. Kyle Ramage and Lem Butler traded competition for collaboration, with a mission to create opportunities for other coffee professionals and make specialty coffee more approachable. They roast out of Raleigh, North Carolina and run three cafes in the Greater Raleigh area.
