Adam McClellan, Coffee Buyer
We talk a lot about quality around here. But what does that mean beyond the cupping table, brew bar, and espresso machine? Since we base our green coffee purchasing on the best of the best, we want repeatability and investment on the source side to get to that quality year after year, so what type of work and measurement is needed to get to that cup quality to have positive social impact and long term benefits?
For us, the combined work and investment of Ethiopia Duromina co-operative together with Technoserve, shows the clear path and model for this coffee quality/social/environmental benefit equation.
We are thrilled to be able to serve you this stunning coffee, now a standard part of our annual line up of incredible Ethiopia offerings, and to be investing even heavier in this great partnership as the new harvest begins in Ethiopia. This year’s Duromina continues to exhibit flavors of pineapple, green grape and candied citrus. For us, it remains one of the most emblematic cups from Ethiopia to date. Also, it’s in the running for our single origin espresso of the year. Enjoy.
