Highwire Coffee Roasters

Featured in April 2013 Box

Usually, the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX) would prevent single-source Ethiopian coffees (such as the exquisite batch you hold in your hands) from ever seeing the light of day. But this ain't no usual coffee. This shimmering Yirgacheffe was just so singular, so colorful, so freakin' tasty, that it's exporters found a way to deliver it straight to you. And you'll be glad they did, because these beans have been hand-selected to be far higher quality than could ever be bought on the ECX. This bright, iridescent coffee opens with floral aromas that introduce candy-like layers of sugar and brulee'd lemon, accented with notes of bergamot and black tea.

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.
