We’re very excited to announce that one of our favorite coffees, Ethiopia Amaro Gayo, is on its way back! We know so many of our customers enjoy this coffee so we couldn’t be happier for its return. The coffee has just arrived and we’ve already begun roasting, so you should see it in our cafe starting Friday, June 23 and online shoppers are now able to place orders starting today!
If you’re not familiar with this exceptional coffee, it’s exported through Ethiopia’s only female miller/exporter, Asnakech Thomas. Native to the Amaro Gayo region, Asnakech decided in 2005 to return to her homeland to improve coffee quality at her mill and in local communities. The Amaro Mountains are a small, beautiful range separating the communities of Amaro on the eastern slopes from Nechisar National Park and the lowland tribal areas of Arba Minch in southwest Ethiopia, Sidamo region. The local coffee varieties, relatively light population, waterfalls and highland bamboo forests are among the many unique features of the area.
Tasting Notes: Complex and nuanced floral and fruit flavors with hints of apricot, strawberry, dark chocolate and subtle blueberry. Excellent body and balance.

A Level-Two Certified Barista, native Northwesterner turned So-Cal girl, Savannah is also addicted to yoga, hiking, meditation and long drives up Coast Highway 101. She doesn’t remember ever not loving coffee. Even as a child, when most other kids typically hate the taste, it was something she craved, which looking back, was unquestionably an early prediction of a career devoted to specialty coffee.
