Meet the Producers

More than half of coffee in Ethiopia is called ‘garden coffee’, because it’s grown in the yards of producers, along with crops such as beans, bananas, avocadoes, and mangoes. Smallholders pick their coffees and combine them at the nearest mill, where it is then processed and sent on to the Ethiopia Commodity Exchange (ECX) to be auctioned.

After this lot was acquired by Royal Coffee importers, it was shipped to the Descamex Plant in Mexico to be taken through the company’s premier water decaffeination process. By soaking green coffee beans in water taken from the glaciers of Pico de Orizaba near Córdoba, Mexico, Descamex removes 99% of the caffeine. They then drain off and filter this water, discard the caffeine, and return the water-soluble oils back to the beans, thus retaining the coffee’s natural flavor and aroma. No chemicals. No contaminants. Just good clean specialty coffee in decaf form, roasted to perfection by Old Soul Co.

Sidamo, Ethiopia

The air in the growing regions of Ethiopia is heavy with the scent of coffee flowers--like jasmine and orange flowers, and yet not at all like. Coffee’s origin is shrouded in mystery but is believed to have begun in Ethiopia, where heirloom varieties still grow wild beside the road. As the story goes, a drowsy goat herder named Kaldi noticed his goats were perkier after nibbling on the coffee trees, and tried the cherry for himself. Caffeine was discovered, and coffee’s epic began.

While there is an overarching Ethiopian coffee characteristic (blueberries and lemon curd, many say), each region has its own unique flavor profile. The Sidama region which includes the Yirgacheffe and Guji zones offers characteristic lemon-citric tones and bright acidity.

Old Soul Co.

Started by Tim Jordan and Jason Griest in an obscure alley in Sacramento in 2006, Old Soul Co. has grown rapidly but still enthusiastically shares the same vision ten years later: "celebrate the artisan aspects of bread baking and coffee roasting and dedicate ourselves to getting better at our crafts everyday!"

Old Soul's coffee sourcing practices set them apart: owner Jason Griest travels to as many of the farms growing Old Soul's coffees as possible. In Sacramento, Old Soul is deeply involved in volunteering and giving back to the community. The roasting company has received many 90+ and "Best Of" awards over the past years.
