NOTE: All of our premium Arabica coffees are roasted to City+ to Full City roasts, showing minimal-to-no surface oils….we want all of the flavor to stay in the beans until the coffee is ground! Despite the additional descriptors, the first flavor and aroma you'll think of is "COFFEE".

Ethiopia Tasting Pair: Sidama Shantawene Village washed and natural process
***Limited holiday offering of two 12 ounce bags***
We learned about this remarkable little operation a couple of years ago when our friends Emily and Mike of Catalyst Coffee spent 6 months working with the farmers on agronomy and processing. Last year we offered the “Daye Bensa” from this farm and it was excellent. The current offering includes their local coffee cherry as well as that of nearby Shantawene, Bombe and Keramo Villages, and is certified organic and traceable to the farm level, by grower. Elevations range from 2000 to 2100 meters, comprise heirloom varietals and are of comparatively small screen size…intense!
These coffees are super sweet and complex. The natural (dry)-processed variant has a wide palette of flavors and we're roasting light-medium to capture the mixed berry compote/blueberry spectrum as well as winey notes. The washed process is quite floral, honeycomb-like and lively citrus notes like tangerine and Mandarin orange.
Blending them will be up to you…worth trying for sure! A pound and a half of special coffees for the price of one pound!
 1 lb. bag $18.95 lb.

Symphony Latte, by Tyler Hauptman of Sweet Masterpiece
Barista Tyler Hauptman of Sweet Masterpiece (Portland, OR) shows off his chops on Badbeard's Symphony blend coffee.
"Sumatra Triple Pick Lintong There's a swamp mud jungle funk going on here. Aromatically, Doctor Livingston's cherries have fallen out of his knapsack and lie among the moldering leaves, next to a bog. An Irish peat bog. Lightly singed. In Sumatra. Go figure. That smoky peat-water thing carries to the body - ROBUST I believe is the word. Sweet, voluptuous presentation quickly yields to the gripping, chunky tannins wrapped in licorice that dominate the midpalate. Longgggg finish spiked with orange rind, cardamon,wood shavings, and leaf mould. This is potent stuff. Diane can't drink it. (She loved the Etheopian Mothership.) My inner orangutan, however, loves it. Thanks Badbeard!"
