  • Farmlevel Story

    Farmlevel

    The 1950 is our salute to the birthplace of coffee. Ethiopia is an incredibly diverse country in linguistic, cultural, and ecological terms – there is no single, monolithic flavor profile associated with its coffee. Our flagship Ethiopian blend celebrates the contributions of thousands of smallholder producers, often growing coffee on less than a hectare of land, and the unique complexity that results from their efforts. The 1950 blend’s components rotate seasonally to capture peak quality, and it currently comprises coffee from the Ambela and Gora Kone washing stations.

    Ambela washing station is situated in the Binitu Ambela district in Ethiopia’s Guji zone. There, batches of coffee are washed with river water before fermenting for 36-48 hours and drying on raised beds. During coffee’s off-season, Ambela’s 6,000 contributing smallholders plant other crops, including maize and enset. Careful processing and legendary terroir merge to produce an extraordinarily clean cup, with hallmark notes of stone fruit and jasmine.

    Gora Kone is located near the Nensebo river in the Arsi region, a short distance from Farmlevel favorite, Worka Sakaro. The washing station supports close to 800 smallholders, whose coffee farms average about 3 hectares each. The coffee is fermented fully submerged in fresh water from the Gerenbicho river before drying on raised beds set into the sloping hillside overlooking the mill. Gora Kone contributes structure and aromatic spice to the 1950.
