It took quite a long time to actually get this coffee because of how the year has been for everyone in coffee. So much waiting. So much anticipation.

Not going to lie, even though Naturals appear to be much easier to roast than their washed counterparts, this FUNKBOMB is an exception. Definitely need to be ON like DonkeyKong every time this green is thrown into the roaster. The result when we kill it? FUNKY! JUICY! HAZY! So much fun. We slam it as espresso at the roastery & you can too at home, just age it appropriately. We least 3 weeks.


A little about Ethiopia

Ethiopia is a coffee powerhouse. It’s the birthplace of the plant, the seventh largest producing country in world, and one of the world’s leading consumers of coffee as well. Because coffee is such a vital part of the economy in Ethiopia, the government has a hand in it, making for an interesting coffee context. Ethiopia is proudly a nation that has never been colonized, and the longtime government has been from a tribal minority (the Tigray). In 2018 there was a coup that installed an Oromo president – the largest tribe in Ethiopia. Its namesake region, Oromia, sprawls awkwardly south and west from the capital city Addis Ababa – and covers the majority of coffee territory in Ethiopia.

Of the over 100 million people in Ethiopia, almost 15 million rely on coffee for income. Coffee accounts for 60% of foreign income, and is about 40% of total country exports. For the scope (Africa’s largest producing country) and importance of the industry, there’s a surprising amount of consolidation. Things are constantly changing in Ethiopia but for the most part, buying happens in three ways, from an Exporter who buys off the ECX, from a Coop Union which markets coffees collected from member coops, or direct from a single producer or estate (as long as they have a farm over 2 hectares, they can export).
