...in this coffee.
Iwariti (love and persistence combined in Amharic), is the result of a partnership between Ardent Coffee Exporters in Ethiopia and Unravel Coffee Merchants based here in Colorado. They work with about 1100 small plot farmers who bring their harvest to Idido, a famed washing station in Yirgacheffe. Senay Hailemariam is the project lead in Yirgcheffe and we are certainly grateful for the work he and all involved have done to provide such a tasty coffee from the birthplace of coffee.
Off the grind you’ll find lovely jasmine-like floral aromatics which beautifully carry over into the flavor as well. In the cup, the floral notes are joined by a lemon-lime acidity and a deep honeyed sweetness. Iwariti is an amazing example of all that is great about washed coffees from Yirgacheffe – intense florals, lively citrus acidity and sweetness that shines throughout. Enjoy!

We buy, roast, and sell coffee. On a surface level, this sounds simple enough. But buying coffee in a way we are proud of and in a way that those who buy our coffee are proud of is often complex, challenging, and hard work. We find ourselves on a continuum of buying and selling that progresses towards more sustainable, meaningful and equitable relationships. The chart below provides basic information for each lot on where we are on this journey.
