Ethiopia Harrar Coffee
Rare and exotic Ethiopia Harar Coffee.
We have always prided ourselves on sourcing the most exotic, rare and interesting coffees.
Whether it's monsoon lots, heirlooms, or experimental processing techniques, we love to discover and master contemporary coffees and stay at the forefront.
It's no secret that Ethiopian Harrar coffees are among the most challenging coffees to purchase, except for perhaps Cuban and Yemeni.
The amount of Harrar offered for sale globally is small. Tiny.
In some seasons, there are no Harrar available. In 2014, we endured almost four years without Harrar as the quantities and qualities were low, yet prices were outrageous.
It has to do with Harrar being grown from old heirloom varietals. These coffee trees are extremely delicate and easily damaged by adverse weather conditions. Drought is the biggest problem affecting African coffee farmers, and nowhere is it more difficult than in Ethiopia.
With yields (the total volume of the crop) so low and the trees requiring a lot more effort and expense for crop management, Ethiopian farmers are shifting away from Harrar to more hardy species.
Yields on Harrar can be as low as half of other varietals. You get the picture.
In some cases, Ethiopian coffee farmers are moving away from Harar coffee and planting other fruits or crop types that generate better returns.
We are so pleased and proud to offer this amazing Harrar available now - one of the best lots we have seen in 16 years.
It's a standout coffee and a true bucket list experience.
Grab it before we run out. Note, only available in 1kg bags.

How we roast your coffee
Twenty years of roasting every weekday, 51 weeks a year. Many batches and a level of experience unmatched in the Australian coffee market. The same person who roasts that very first batch is the same person who roasts every batch today. Another feature rarely matched for brands our size.
Roasting coffee has never been about freaky talent or secrets passed down through generations. Nope, to roast and understand the roasting process, it is all about practice, practice and more practice. There are no shortcuts, innovative tools, or systems to help jump ahead of the competition.
It's how we can produce Australia's best-tasting and most consistent coffee. Match that with superior quality ingredients, the most advanced infrastructure, and mature processes; you have the solution for great-tasting coffee. We roast to target sweetness, acidity, flavour, body and finish to generate the best possible balance across all those competing elements.
Our espresso style is a medium roast suitable for premium cafes that care about quality. Filter-style roasts are lighter to meet the demands of modern alternative brewing methods to retain fruit-forward complexity.
What is most important?
The answer is that they all are. It didn't take a pandemic to learn why speed, freshness, quality and value are all equally important.
Heck no. We worked that out in 2007 as the original pioneer of online premium quality fresh roasted coffees to Australian coffee lovers.
We get it. Running out of coffee is a nightmare scenario nobody wishes to experience. With 16 years and almost 1 million successful parcel deliveries under our belts, we know a thing or two about what it takes to run a high-performance and high-speed coffee supply operation.
To ensure our coffees are crazy fresh, barely hours old when they ship out the door, it requires significant scale and resources working rapidly to roast, pack, label, grind, parcel and ship. It's an eco-system we have continued to build and optimize for 16 years, measuring our performance in minutes, not hours and days, like some of our competitors.
Nobody can guarantee or predict delivery timeframes, but we assure you of our commitment to ship freshly roasted coffees prepared to precise quality standards at a competitive price and always processed with a critical sense of urgency.
We struggled to find a coffee that could be drank without milk as we are dairy intolerant. So glad to find this product.
Liked this coffee with a nice fruit taste and sweet flavors. Would buy again.
Perfect as a black coffee with excellent acids.
Good flavors of classic African natural coffees with strawberry in the finish.
Can taste the red fruits. Definitely smell the red fruits. Has excellent sweetness and we think this is a great product and excellent value for money.
