Bean Line

This coffee comes from Western Ethiopia's Kata Muduga Union, an umbrella group of smaller coffee cooperatives (like Duromina and Nano Challa, which you'll know from our menu) including Yukro. Yukro has seen a leap in quality (and reputation) in past years due to improved techniques and equipment, such as resource-efficient machines to remove the fruit from the coffee, fiberglass tanks for washing, and fastidious drying under canopies.
