Classic Ethiopian florality and fruit forward caramelized body fill this cup. Aromas include jasmine, coffee flower and lemonade, while flavor notes of oolong tea swirl with pineapple, kaffir lime, and lemongrass. It’s zesty and sweet, complex yet balanced.

Meet Smallholder producers

This special lot comes courtesy of Kolla Bolcha co-op, a new cooperative from the esteemed Kata Muduga Union Cooperative. Kata Muduga Co-op, established in 2016, is a forward-thinking group of growers who not only produce stellar coffees but do so in an ecologically responsible manner. For example, they use eco-friendly Penagos pulping machines to remove the fruit from the beans.

Currently Kolla Bolcha processes the coffees of some 400 local member farmers, washing and grading ripe cherries through the use of channels that separate the coffee by density. To finish the drying process, the coffee is are moved into the sunlight for 1-2 weeks until the moisture stabilizes and it’s ready to mill and export.

Oromia, Ethiopia

The Jimma zone is in the Oromia region. One of nine ethnically-based regions in Ethiopia, Oromia, named after the Oromo people, was created in 1995 from the Sidama region. Verdant, often remote, it shares borders with all the other regions except Tigray. This border sharing has led to disputes, the most recent being August 2016. Currently, an unquiet lull exists that will hopefully solidify into justice for all involved.

But Oromia has been famous for more than just the recent political upheaval. It is in this region that the fabled goat herder, Kaldi, and his goats discovered the first coffee cherries around 400 A.D. Coffea Arabica has spread (with the help of mankind’s love affair with the magic bean) and now grows throughout the world’s temperate zones. But here in Ethiopia, coffee trees proliferate as they did all those centuries ago, and the air is sweet with the scent of coffee flowers--like jasmine and orange flowers, and yet not at all like.

Ritual Coffee

When Ritual opened its doors on Valencia Street in 2005, they started what many call a coffee revolution in San Francisco. Their goal then—and their goal now—is to craft the very best cup of coffee available anywhere. Period. A pioneer in the recent shift of consciousness that has defined the modern coffee industry, they’ve learned a lot over the years. Still, the care and attention they lavish on their process is unchanged as they work to bring the very best out of the coffees they painstakingly choose, roast, and deliver fresh to coffee lovers worldwide.

With 5 retail stores in the bay area and a roasting facility in the SoMa district of San Francisco, Ritual takes pride in a growing number of direct trade relationships with coffee producers around the world, working with farmers to help them improve their quality with each passing season.
