We wanted the perfect cup of coffee, so we roasted it. We believe that the future can be humane, sustainable and delicious - so delicious we won't wait for it to arrive. The future is businesses that have a minimal ecological footprint, that are tied constructively to their consumer and producer communities. The future is knowing what is enough and savoring a sweet little spot in a well-balanced world. We serve our customers the future today by providing magnificent, ethically-sourced coffees, medium-roasted and expertly blended for espresso and more that will blow their minds and let their thoughts drift to a future worth working for. It's not science fiction, it's Scarlet City.

Resistance is Futile.

Ethiopia Daye Bensa Natural

20.00

In 2006, brothers Asefa and Mulugeta Dukamo founded Daye Bensa, a coffee grower and exporter in Ethiopia. Daye Bensa exports beans from its farm, in the Shantawene Village, and from "out-growers" in three villages: Shantawene, Karamo and Bombe.

This Shantawene coffee is named after the village, where the majority of the people, many of them women, work on the coffee farm. Daye Bensa is at 1,900–2,217 meters, and the delivered cherry from comes from out-growers' farms higher up the mountain, between 2,000 and 2,400 meters.

Going forward, Daye Benesa is hoping to work with more farmers, to particularly encourage women farmers and to work with Hawassa University, to help students perform research to improve coffee quality.

Flavor notes: dark cherry, juicy papaya, cinnamon, hazelnuts, chocolate

1lb (16oz) whole beans.
