Ethiopia Mi'eessa Robe Natural Process
We Taste: Ripe Strawberry, Melon, Cordial Cherry
This coffee comes from Mi'eessa Robe, a 45 year old farmer in the Guji region of Ethiopia, who has been growing coffee for his entire life, now operating the farm he inherited from his parents.
Mi'eessa's farm ranges from 2,000 meters above sea level, all the way up to 2,300 meters, which is a remarkable height. The altitude and microclimate create an ideal location for coffee growth and ripening, leading to excellent results in the cup.
This lot is naturally processed, and comes with loads of fruit character in the cup. We're tasting notes of ripe strawberry, melon, and cordial cherry, while still remaining very clean and allowing the terrior to shine.
This is one of our first single producer lots in Ethiopia -- a country where it has been historically rare to have coffee identified to the producer level (normally you see coffees at the estate or cooperative level for identification). We're thrilled to be offering it, and can't wait for everyone to try it out.

Is your coffee organic and/or fair trade?
While some of our coffees may be certified organic or fair trade, we do not specifically look for either of these certifications when buying, and do not market them as such. All of our coffees are bought at fixed prices above the market, and 99% of the time we are paying higher prices than the Fair Trade Certified price. Our sourcing goals are always quality and flavor focused, and we buy from producers and importers we trust to provide us with coffee that fits into our ideology.
How fresh is my coffee when I receive it?
We roast Monday through Friday each week, so generally, we try and ship coffee within 24 hours from roast whenever possible. With our shipping times, that means you should always receive your coffee within 2-5 days from roast, depending on your location and proximity to Philadelphia, and the shipping option you choose.
Do you have recommendations for brewing?
Yes! First and foremost, whenever possible, grind directly before brewing. This will help maintain freshness, and help you get the most from your coffee. Additionally, we recommend a ratio of about 1:16.8, (so about 22g of coffee for a 12oz cup). If your brew is tasting too weak, try using a finer grind size; and if it’s a slower, heavier brew, try to make the grind more coarse. If you have any additional questions, or want to get into more detail, feel free to drop us a line in our contact form.
