We love this time of year as its when fresh, natural Ethiopians arrive and those big boozy, red fruits start appearing again. Our second release of Bond St for 2018 is a blend of two coffees from Colombia and Ethiopia. Boozy, red fruits notes of the Ethiopian coffee have been partnered with a coffee from San Fernando to bring balance and acidity to the blend. This Uraga Tome lot was a particular standout on the cupping table.

Surrounded by the mountainous Farallones with access to rich volcanic soil and fresh spring water, San Fernando has the perfect conditions for the production of high quality coffee.
Don Humberto has been at San Fernando since the 1970’s and we have been working directly with him for the last four years. Keen to better understand how farming and processing techniques affect the quality of coffee produced, Don and his team split the farm into separate processing lots based on altitude and varietal variances in 2006. This has allowed them to fine tune the flavour profile of their coffee and create a repeatable product.

Located at the Northern end of the famous Guji zone, Uraga has some of the highest coffee growing regions in Ethiopia. This is a great example of a naturally processed Ethiopian, with notes of strawberry jam, lavender and stewed plum.
