This medium-roasted blend is our unique combination of natural rich, full skin Ethiopian 1 Sidamo Grade 4 Gujiand with the wonderfully fruity, zesty Harrar. These varieties, which descend from the original coffee crop, yield authenticity, intense flavors, and a ritualistic after meal treat. Their flavor comes from the local energy-filled volcanic soil, which provides a mineral bath for the crops to sprout from. These beans are truly evocative of the mythical first coffee farmer, Kaldi the goat herder, a ninth century Ethiopian.
Great Arabica coffee is grown throughout the world. We could not possibly roast and stock each and every one of them because the coffee would never be fresh! Freshness, careful micro roasting and cup integrity of the bean are our priorities. To offer as many coffee adventures as possible, each week Old City Coffee roasts a special coffee available at a great price for one week only. These selections are chosen to offer our customers a wide variety of taste profiles and are sourced seasonally from our Farm Partners in diverse coffee growing regions. Specials begin on Wednesdays and are available through the following Tuesday.
