To Ethiopia Sidamo

Ethiopia Sidamo,

I don’t know quite how to say this.  One would think that the birth place of coffee would result in an explicit and flavorful cup of steaming happiness.  Not so.  There was, in fact, a sense of gentleness about you but this fell flat immediately after swallowing.  The floral and lemon contrast left just enough zest without biting back.  Why, then, do I sense something synthetic about your nature?  It does not seem that you are exactly who you advertise to be.  "This coffee is both delicate and complex" may have been your aspiration; it is unwise for you to make this claim and not deliver.  Tell the truth.  Be who you are.  

I'll try again later,


P.S. Try pairing up with Bear Naked banana nut granola

  1. Properly the most famous name of all coffee blends, yet the one most abused by many roasters. Our Mocha Java blend brings you a true combination of earthy Ethiopian mocha, combined with a uniquely complex Sumatra Coffee. A truly unique blend.


    Acidity: *

    A longstanding favourite, developed over many years. A smooth full-bodied coffee for all day enjoyment.
