Your moment is coming
The coffee farmers of the West Arsi region of Ethiopia have always been lumped into the greater Sidamo Zone, despite their unique tasting coffee. Kept in the shadows, the farmers were held back from recognition and investment from international buyers, which often meant fewer roads and social services were developed locally.
Thankfully in 2017, the Ethiopian Coffee Exchange made it possible for farmers to sell directly to roasters again, opening up new opportunities for individual farmers and smaller regions to gain recognition and investment—and wow, have they earned it!
The West Arsi region swept the 2020 Cup of Excellence competition in Ethiopia, shocking the coffee industry and essentially creating a whole new category of Ethiopian coffee regions. We’re thrilled to offer this unique bean from the Nensebo Processing Station—one of the most interesting coffees we’ve ever roasted.
Known as the birthplace of coffee, Ethiopia’s natural coffee forests produce the most diverse and fascinating coffees in the world. There are thousands of wild and undocumented heirloom coffee plant varieties in Ethiopia, along with little-known varieties—like the plant that grew this coffee!
The country has traditionally been divided up into five overly-simplistic coffee growing regions: Lekempti, Jimma, Limmu, Sidamo, and Yirgacheffe. But now that farmers can sell directly to buyers, the international coffee community is awaking to the magnificent diversity of coffee found around the country.
We roast and ship coffee to order Monday through Friday, and orders placed before 12 pm EST will ship that same day!
JavaPresse never holds inventory in a warehouse. Our beans are always roasted and shipped within two hours to ensure that when your beans arrive, they're as fresh and flavorful as they could possibly be.
