About the coffee

Our Ambush

This delicious coffee comes from forest grown farms, tucked away on mountains 1,900 - 2,300 metres above sea level, with hardly any human interference. When you need to dig deep and just need a little more energy - When you feel lucky to be alive and want to celebrate, this coffee will delight you!
For us, it's more than a celebration. When you escape an ambush with a shot fired two metres away from you, every sip of coffee becomes a ritual of gratitude. This coffee comes from beautiful forest farms up the mountainous region of Oromia, Ethiopia. The hard working hands of these coffee farmers make this brew possible.
We continue to support these amazing farmers in their efforts to live their dreams, to harness the cosmic forces to preserve their heritage.

To most coffee drinkers, Ethiopia as a coffee origin is a place that feels forever on the other side of tantalizing gap. The coffees themselveswhen made well, can be mind-alteringly complex and overwhelmingly fragrantThey taste different to all other origin coffees and are never convincingly interchangeable with any other washed or sundried arabica on Earth. 

From Ethiopia’s landscape comes some of the best-known flavour descriptors in the coffee world (blueberry, jasmine, bergamot) that are considered global benchmarks of flavour.  And yet Ethiopia — the origin of coffee itself — tends to frustrate the outside buyer. 

Say what you like about how the coffees tastes, but most coffee professionals struggle constantly to keep up with the domestic bureaucracy or the tribal politics that influence cooperative memberships, let alone simply verifying the varieties and the quality of cup. In equal degree, Ethiopia’s sublime natural assets and forests for coffee cultivation and resulting quality, as well as the diversity and liveliness of its internal marketsare unique in the coffee producing world, and very exiting to outside understanding

Add to this that coffee here is not tied to colonial profiteering or navigated via national cultivar system with clear parentageeach a common basis for buyers to grasp the big picture of individual coffee countriesThe system of its workings, in its way, is beautiful nonviolenstance against appropriation
