Why we Love this Coffee:

What can we say, a great washed Ethiopia will always be the gateway to specialty coffee for almost anyone who has had one. This one is exceptional and comes from our friends at Red Fox Coffee Merchants, who are a small and curative importer with a focus on relationships. Duromina was one of the core projects of the founders dating back a decade. You can definitely tell this coffee has been cared for from seed to cup. It’s for fans of delicate, sophisticated coffees with tons of soft florals, melon  and meyer lemon acidity.

More About this Coffee:

Duromina comes to us from the Agaro region of Western Ethiopia. Nowadays, Duromina is a well-known heavy hitter with widespread name recognition, but it actually didn’t find its way to market until ten years ago, when USAID’s Technoserve project vested Agaro—once known for less-than-stellar Grade 5 sundried naturals—with brand-new processing equipment, allowing their coffee to showcase its unique character and improve the lives of those growing it in the process. Duromina operates under the leadership of the Kata Muduga cooperative union, whose continued investment in the co-ops that it leads makes possible some of the most delicious and coveted coffees in the world. Thanks to Technoserve’s initial investment and the stellar leadership within Duromina and Kata Muduga, Duromina’s processing is immaculate, leading to an incredible showcase of the coffee’s natural potential year after year for a ridiculously long time off harvest. The secret? After Penagos processing equipment mechanically removes most of the fruit and mucilage from the seeds, they soak overnight in fiberglass tanks, allowing any remaining sugars to be fully removed from their surface so that the coffees are perfectly clean by the time they hit the drying beds for the eight-plus days they’ll need to dry.
