From the roaster: Negele Gorbitu was founded in 1996 following the end of communist rule in Ethiopia and the establishment of the Federal Democratic Republic with geographic divisions according to traditional ethnic divisions.  With seed capital of 400 birr, 64 original members incorporated the cooperative on the border of Oromia and Yirgacheffe regions. By 2011 the organization had grown to over 1600 members with 2.78 million birr of capital and a production capacity of 10 containers.

Beans from the Yirgacheffe region produces very floral, tea-like coffees that have a  distinctive, citrus forward flavor profile. This coffee is a classic example of all of these characteristics. Additionally, it is a certified Fair Trade Organic growing cooperative that runs their organization with honesty and integrity, all while producing exceptional coffee.

I have been a subscriber since their launch, having been introduced to Better Grounds at a coffee festival. I have enjoyed every monthly selection so far! Their service is a great choice for anyone who, like me, wants easier access great quality coffee and anyone who might feel overwhelmed trying to look into the sourcing bonafides of different brands. I appreciate that they do this work for their clients, and also support different roasters who are doing good work.
