    We are transfixed by Ethiopian coffees—Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee, after all. And we are inspired by their floral, citrusy bright notes for the coffees that we use in Apollo.

  • Buchiro

    South Kivu, Democratic Republic of the Congo
    $19.00 | 12 oz bag

    The challenges of working in the Democratic Republic of the Congo can be staggering at times, however, so is the potential to produce staggering coffee quality in this Central African nation. This organic coffee comes to us from the Buchiro washing station found on the shores of beautiful Lake Kivu. Buchiro—which is run by the Muungano Cooperative—could not be better positioned to execute the potential quality we are talking about. Rich volcanic soils, local Bourbon varieties, and breathtaking elevations converge in this selection to bring vibrant flavors of clementine, black tea, and green grape.

    Buziraguhindwa

    Kayanza, Burundi
    $18.25 | 12 oz bag

    In recent years, the tiny village of Buziraguhindwa, Burundi, has become known for high-quality coffee—thanks in part to the work of Ramadhan Salum, the owner of the washing station where the town’s coffee is processed. In 2010, Counter Culture became the first buyer to work with Ramadhan, and we have worked with him and his dedicated staff ever since to create unique coffees like this one. This washed lot showcases notes of black tea, grapefruit, and honey.

    Buziraguhindwa Natural Sundried

    Kayanza, Burundi
    $18.25 | 12 oz bag

    This coffee is produced by Ramadhan Salum and his team, who work with hundreds of farmers in the village of Buziraguhindwa. In partnership with Counter Culture, Ramadhan made the first-ever special-preparation natural sundried coffee in Burundi as an experiment in 2011. After falling in love with the results, we sold the first small production lot in 2013. Today, Ramadhan continues to lead the way in Burundi, making natural sundried coffees with refined-yet-big fruit flavors. Look for notes of raspberry, cardamom, and a juicy mouthfeel.

  • Idido

    Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia
    $19.00 | 12 oz bag

    The Idido cooperative is located just east of the small, bustling town of Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia. Its members’ farms are situated throughout seven communities in some of the highest-altitude coffee growing areas in the region. We work closely with this organic cooperative year after year to select their best coffees, which are known for their sweet and delicate flavors. Look for floral, melon, and citrus notes.

  • Kushikamana

    Central and Eastern Regions, Kenya
    $20.75 | 12 oz bag

    Through a project initiated by Counter Culture, small-farm owners in different parts of Kenya’s growing regions started working together to discuss and test new techniques to improve the quality of their coffee. These historically independent growers chose the name Kushikamana, which means “connected” in Swahili, to represent the unity of their group. This selection has a classic profile of coffees from Kenya—blackcurrant, citrus, and savory notes—but with a clarity not found in many Kenyan coffees.

  • Yabitu Tome

    Uraga, East Guji, Ethiopia
    $19.00 | 12 oz bag

    The Yabitu Tome washing station acts as a central hub for collecting and processing coffee cherries from thousands of nearby producers. Once collected, the coffee is sorted, depulped, fermented for up to 48 hours, and washed, before being dried on raised beds for 10–12 days. Meticulous care is given to ensure consistent drying before being transported for export. We're delighted to offer one of the best examples of coffee from the region—we taste peach, lemon, and simple syrup.
