Flying Goat Coffee

Featured in May 2012 Box

The Gebre family-run Moredocofe farm is dedicated to preserving its local Ethiopian environment by carefully culling the best fruit from a combination of wild native trees and farm-grown plants. In fact, their farm is located in the jungles of the Dawa Basin where the coffee trees thrive in the shade of the jungle’s canopy – making it a model of sustainable farming. Flying Goat Coffee, from Healdsburg, CA, discovered these amazing beans and roasted them with enough finesse to merit a Good Food Awards nomination. What you will taste is a new take on a classically balanced, citrusy Ethiopian coffee: black and jasmine tea merge a honey and chamomile sweetness with a sparkling, crisp acidity and finish.

We feature truly small-batch, seasonal coffees. So there might not be any left. But that's a good thing! Only big corporate factories have the same stuff all year round.
