Description: This Ethiopian is a washed process, which is why it is so fruit-forward. You'll find notes of berries, stone fruit, and chocolate. Refisa is a specific farming community in the West Arsi Zone. West Arsi recently gained a lot of notoriety as its own distinctive growing region because several cooperatives and farmers from the zone won the first ever Ethiopia Cup of Excellence. This specific lot was produced by SNAP Coffees, a company started by Neguesse Debela. In his past, Neguesse has worked in the Ethiopia internet and computer technology industries. Only in the last couple years following an experience at a coffee-shop in Minnesota, has Neguesse become interested in working in specialty coffee. He realized the potential for coffee to be sold abroad into the international market, and wanted to use his skills to give small farming families greater opportunities. SNAP is now one of the premier producers of coffee in Ethiopia, working with more than 5000 farmers associated with 6 distinct washing stations across Ethiopia.
When you order this bag of Ethiopia Refisa, not only do you get 12 ounces of craft-roasted coffee, you'll also receive an impactful piece of artwork from our Generous Artist: PichiAvo! After you’ve enjoyed all the coffee, open up the bag to reveal a beautiful piece of art to keep forever! You can find the story behind each bag here. (The three designs are not coffee specific, which means each order is a fun surprise on which design you'll receive!)
