The Layo Teraga Cooperative is responsible for some of the highest scoring coffees out of Uraga, Ethiopia, and this roast by Flower Child delightfully expresses the terroir. Nuanced, complex, and compellingly developed, we tasted peach, cola, sweet pastry, and florals. Enjoy a balanced tea-like body interwoven with a sparkling acidity and a lemony finish.

A new addition to the Bay Area’s coffee scene, Flower Child is a tiny Oakland-based roaster run by two industry veterans. Their roasting style aims to carefully showcase each coffee, letting its unique individual characteristics shine through.
Our coffees are best brewed two weeks post-roast. For pour-over, brew at a 1:18 coffee-to-water ratio, use relatively soft or filtered water, Ode setting 3 or a medium-fine grind (like sand), and a total brew time of 4 - 5 minutes.
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.
