Understanding the quality potential of the area, Kadir Jabril built his washing station in the kabele (community) of Wate Gogugu, where he processes coffees from his site and from small producers in the surrounding community. The coffee farms of Wate Gogugu are some of the newest in Ethiopia, with young coffee trees (5-10 years), high elevation of 2000-2280 MASL, and microclimate which delivers coffee of remarkable quality. You'll love how the cardamom-like aromatics and lemon zest acidity support the tropical flavors of mango in this unique medium-light blend.

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.
