From The Barn

When we decided to work more closely with producers in Ethiopia, Mohamed Ali became one of our closest partners. There was so much potential to improve, and Mustafa Mohamed Ali was eager to find an exclusive roasting partner to make his vision a reality. Fast forward, we are involved in 3 sustainability projects at his two estates and the coffees of Mohamed Ali are true seasonal highlights.

This year, his naturally processed coffee is better than ever, with improvements achieved through training and investment at the farm offering a beautiful cup profile: the beautiful sweetness of ripe strawberry awaits.

Prices of Ethiopian coffees have risen by more than 20% this season: an effect of the government forcing coffee exporters to exchange their USD-proceeds to local currency at an unfavourable rate.

What keeps us coming back to Mohamed Ali is the irresistible quality of ripe strawberries. Aromas of peach blossom and stone fruit reveal a juicy profile that is full of fruit, with gentle acidity. Roasted for espresso, the creamy mouthfeel is rounded off by delicious, chocolatey sweetness
