Buttery fruit pastry, anyone? This coffee has all the ingredients. “Sholi” means “mutual assistance” and the Sholi Cooperative lives up to their name: providing health resources to its members as well as cultivating coffees to exacting standards. This naturally processed Bourbon hit us right away with its delightful buttery fragrance. We tasted apple, licorice, dried cherry, prune, sweet honey, and baking spices, with a stone fruit acidity and a 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!
