The Origin of Coffee | Limited Release Combo 2 Pack
Within the coffee community, there is some debate and confusion about the origin of coffee. Ethiopia claims to be the originating country of coffee. But, there are also stories told about Yemen being the first to grow the coffee plant. We may never discover the true answer, but here's a conclusion we can all agree on... Coffee is delicious! So let's stop and be thankful for each region's contributions and enjoy the deliciousness of coffee from both countries.
Ethiopia and Yemen both offer a unique and flavorful experience. For this reason, we decided to create an "Origin of Coffee" Bundle featuring two limited-release coffees from each region. Both coffees were given very high ratings at every step of their path to Sagebrush. With this one-of-a-kind bundle, you can taste and compare two incredible Black Label coffees and discover what is beloved about two amazing coffee-growing countries!
Due to the limited quantities and high value of both coffees, they will be sold in 6 oz bags. To create a finer unboxing experience, the coffees will be presented in our new Black Label Limited Release packaging.

Ethiopia Gedeb Worka Wuri Limited Edition Black Label
Ethiopian coffees are always a favorite here at Sagebrush, so when we give it a Black Label status, you know it has to be a standout! When we tasted this wet-processed bean for the first time, we were impressed with the mouthfeel. It is floral, sweet, spiced, and offers the complex fruited notes we most desire from this region. It brews a clean cup with notes of marmalade and honey-like sweetness, with a floral aroma of jasmine. We roast it light to keep the complexity and showcase the citrus, sweet flavors. This coffee truly has it all!
Yemen Mokha Matari Limited Edition Black Label
This is our second Yemen offering, and after the success of our first, we knew we had to get more from this region. From the first cupping, we were blown away by the richness and rustic appeal. This dark roast coffee has the perfect contrast of a smooth full-body and bold, complex taste. The warm flavor of cinnamon spice pairs perfectly with the bittersweetness of chocolate. A fruited finish, reminiscent of dried apricots, adds a balanced sweetness to the brew, providing a unique and memorable drinking experience.

We roast and ship all of our coffees daily. Unlike many roasters, they pick a day for each varietal. We roast in small enough batches to guarantee that every bag of coffee that you order is roasted after you order it, usually the day after you order it. It then ships out on the next pickup. USPS usually comes each morning and FedEx each afternoon.
We believe that with this schedule your coffee will be the freshest possible every time.
Also, if you order before 6am AZ on most days, we'll be able to include it in that day's production, but depending on volume it may go out the next day. We hope as we grow, we'll still be able to meet these commitments.
Coffee Order Shipping Policy:
We've felt the impact of COVID in our carriers' shipping times more than anywhere else. What used to be 2-3 days for USPS is now more like 4-7 days. So recently we updated our shipping policy to make an upgrade to FedEx 2 day shipping as accessible as possible. That means we have the following shipping policy.
- On coffee orders of 1 bag of 6oz, 8oz, 12oz, or 16oz we charge $5 for USPS shipping (4-7 days) and $7 for FedEx 2 day shipping.
- On all coffee orders of 2 bags of more (any size) we offer FREE USPS shipping (4-7 days) and $2 for a FedEx 2 day shipping upgrade.
- On all coffee orders of 2 pounds or more we upgrade to FedEx 2 day shipping for FREE.
Brewing Equipment Shipping Policy:
- Unless otherwise noted all items are shipped the lowest priced between USPS (4-7 days) or Fedex Home Delivery (4 days).
- Shipping will cost $10.00 for orders under $50
- FedEx 2 Day is available for $20 more on most items.
- Our shipping cut-off is about 10am. Typically, if an order comes in before that time, we ship same day. Otherwise, we ship next day.
*No delivery times are guaranteed, USPS is running consistent significant delays, FedEx are about 1 day late 10-15% of the time.
- Note that FedEx does not ship to PO boxes, so if you pick FedEx and have a PO box we will ship that order USPS Priority.
- To maintain these discounts we will primarily be shipping in USPS Flat Rate Padded Envelopes or FedEx Padded Paks. We know the 'unboxing' of these are not optimal, but our goal is to get you your coffee in the best cost model possible and this is our solution.
