Yabitu Koba – Guji, Ethiopia
This coffee comes to us under the careful eye of the Yabitu Koba manager and coffee legend Feku Jebril, and is grown at some of the highest coffee growing elevations in the world. Coffees from this region of Uraga are relatively new, and have only really existed in their own right for around ten years. Before that, they were trucked across the border, blended, and sold as Yirgacheffe. Luckily for us, these unique coffees are now being processed and sold separately, and have become some of our favorite flavor profiles from Ethiopia.

A quick note before you enjoy your espresso….
As roasted coffee needs to naturally de-gas, lighter roasts need longer rest periods. During this time, acids and sugars tend to balance and the overall experience becomes much more integrated. Our coffees will continue integrating and peak 3 to 4 weeks off roast, with often great results for weeks afterwards.
