Ethiopia Harrar Coffee
Rare and exotic
We have always prided ourselves on sourcing the most exotic, rare and interesting coffees.
Whether it's Monsoon lots, heirloom or experimental processing techniques, we love to discover and master all different types of contemporary coffees, staying at the forefront.
It's no secret that Ethiopian Harrar coffees are some of the most difficult and challenging coffees to purchase, except for perhaps Cuban and Yemen.
The amount of Harrar offered for sale globally is really small. In fact tiny.
Some seasons there are no Harrar available. Back in 2014 we endured almost 4 years without any 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 other varietals. You get the picture.
In some cases Ethiopian coffee farmers are moving away from Harrar 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.
A standout coffee and true bucket list experience.

Our customer subscriptions are managed using the Recurpay system.
There are zero fees or lock-in periods and you can make changes at any time to the next shipment date, quantity and even the payment method.
We understand it is difficult to predict consumption of coffee, so the best part is how easy you can pause the subscription and resume again when ready.
Never worry about ordering or running out of delicious coffees again.
How we roast your coffee
20 years of 6hrs a day, every week day for 51 weeks a year. That's a lot of batches, upwards of 100,000 and a level of experience unmatched in the Australian coffee market.
The same person who roasted that very first batch is exactly the same person that roasts every single batch today. Another feature rarely matched for brands our size.
Roasting coffee is not about freaky talent or secrets passed down through generations. It's only ever about practice, practice and more practice just like a golfer or tennis champ, there are no shortcuts or innovative tools and systems to help jump ahead of the competition.
This is how we produce the best tasting and most consistent coffee in Australia. Superior quality ingredients, expert level experience, the most advanced infrastructure and maturity of processes.
There are many different factors at play when roasting and we target sweetness, acidity, flavor, body and finish to generate the best 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?
Answer is 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 way back 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 certainly not days like some of our competitors.
Nobody can guarantee or predict delivery timeframes, but we can assure you of our commitment to ship fresh roasted coffees that have been prepared to precise quality standards at a competitive price and always processed with a critical sense of urgency.
Just like the Beatles song, this coffee is also a classic. Thank you.
When the parcel arrived we could smell it from a distance. Wow what an amazing coffee and so very sweet as espresso
They say Yirgacheffe is the king of coffees. After drinking Harrar it has that rare X factor of enjoyment.
Something rather intoxicating about red fruits in a coffee
We love African coffees and this Harrar is possibly the best yet.
