This coffee comes to us from the Guji region of Ethiopia, sourced in partnership with Red Fox Coffee. The founder of Red Fox, Aleco Chigounis, initially helped to establish Guji as its own distinct region of origin in Ethiopia over a decade ago, as it was once lumped in with the wider known Yirgacheffe region. 

Tebe Melge comes from incredible altitude, grown between 1,900 and 2,300 meters above sea level. Here, a microclimate with long, cool nights slows the maturation of the cherry, creating a sweeter end product. 

This coffee is unique in that while the fruit character of the natural process is not at all subtle, there is still a clear expression of the terroir of the coffee, which is often washed out in a natural. There's a huge red fruit profile, evoking everything from watermelon, strawberry, and cherry, but balanced with florals like orange blossom and a citrus-y acidity.  If you're someone who enjoys natural process coffees, you won't want to miss this one. And if you're someone who thinks naturals are often "too much," you may not want to miss trying this one too.

Frequently Asked Questions

When Will My Order Ship?

Most orders ship the next business day from when they are placed, unless that is a holiday.

The only exception is any pre-order item, which will ship on the date stated on that item's pre-order page.

Do You Have Recommendations For Brewing?

Yes!

First, we recommend a brewing ratio of about 1:17. So whatever your dose of coffee is for a brew (we recommend weighing your coffee in grams), multiply that number by 17, and use that weight of water to brew.

Second, always try to grind your coffee fresh, directly before you brew. This will significantly impact the flavor.

Lastly, and maybe most important, always use the highest quality water you can. Filtered is always best. Coffee is 98.5% water, so the water you use makes a huge difference.

Any other questions? Just drop us a line.

Is ReAnimator Coffee Organic/Fair Trade?

While some of our coffees may happen to be certified organic or fair trade, we do not specifically look for either of these certifications when sourcing coffees, and do not market them as such.

All of our coffees are bought at fixed prices above the c-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.
