Ethiopian Gold label coffees are among our all-time bestsellers and personal favorites, so any new coffee in that category has big shoes to fill. This Ethiopian bean is delicious, and can certainly hold its own among some of our most popular Gold Label coffees. We love the fruitiness of a good dry process, and we love the rich cocoa finish of this coffee. The chocolate sweetness, with the notes of blackberries and dried apricot, creates a delicious cup of coffee. We roast it light because it is so rich and complexly fruited.

Keramo farmers have built a reputation for picking only red cherries, and in 2020 Daye Bensa Coffee earned a Cup of Excellence award.
Coffees in Ethiopia are typically traceable to the washing station level: The average producer here delivers their cherry to the washing station, where it is blended with other producers' deliveries and processed as necessary. The Natural coffees are dried on raised beds that are 25 meters long. Drying takes 15–20 days, weather depending.

I'm sure that you've seen notes on our website about how 'We don't roast until you want it." or "Roasted Fresh After You Order", but have you thought about why and how we setup our business to do that?
