Why Ethiopian?

Another great question from a customer: why do you roast Ethiopian coffees so frequently? The quick answer is the flavor. But, the flavor of high quality Ethiopian coffee isn't something new: some argue that coffee as we know it began in Ethiopia, home to Kaffa, one of several coffee-producing regions in the south of the country.

Here's a longer answer: the flavor. When I roast an Ethiopian, I'm aiming for a fairly light end point. Lightly roasted (city to city plus) Ethiopians have wide flavor profiles. Experts who accurately describe Ethiopian flavors often describe florals, fruits, chocolate, and caramel. It's a complex roast and when it unfolds in the cup, the range of flavors is impressive.
