We are truly honored to offer this, our second Ethiopian coffee from Catalyst Trade, to you all. This coffee, in particular, comes to us from the Sidama region of Ethiopia. Washed coffees from Sidama are highlighted by sweet, citric acidity and delicate floral notes. This coffee is truly delightful with hints of melon paired with a delicate florality and a sweet acidity; its complexity is so alluring that it almost beckons a second and third cup.

The Demeka Becha washing station in Sidama expertly processed this grade 1 coffee to preserve its integrity and complexity of flavor. Catalyst has been working with Ayele Tulu, the owner of the Demeka Becha washing station, and his family for many harvests. Ayele and his wife Genet Haile Endeshow truly operate the washing station as a family business and welcome in friends and strangers, alike, into their warm hospitality. Their care for community and attention to detail only compound our respect and appreciation for the work of Catalyst Trade to find partners like Ayele and his family and to foster warm, rich relationships with their partners like they’ve done, here, in Sidama. We rest easy knowing that the people of Catalyst Trade are directing a majority of their profits back into the hands of the native Ethiopians that make these incredible coffees a possibility and a reality. We’re certain this coffee won’t disappoint -- Get yours today!
