Trufala Blend

The Trufala blend is our seasonal espresso blend wherein we'll blend two coffees from the same origin to give the coffee some depth of flavor. It's our take on a "single origin espresso," a way of giving the espresso some depth of flavor while retaining the bits of origin that make it special.

Of our espresso blends, this one is optimized to be used in smaller milk drinks as it is a brighter, lighter and more delicate espresso that might not be great in lots of milks and syrups. Our goal is to mix a natural and washed coffee from the same origin (ideally the same farm!) to give a nice balanced shot of espresso to you.

This iteration of Trufala is a blend of two Ethiopian coffees:

1. Kossa Geshe Abdu Special - a delicious natural from a single estate in Jimma, this coffee comes from an award winning farmer who takes care of his land (the coffee is certified organic) as well as his people (built a school on the estate for kids.) This is a quality coffee from Ethiopia.

2. Neja Fadil - the washed half of our blend, this coffee is from the Neja Fadil washing station in Guji where 250 farmers bring their cherries. The washing station helps the local farmers with agronomy information as well as expanding quality control to help bring up the whole region.

Individually, each coffee is fantastic. Combine them and whoa. We get notes of raisins, blueberry syrup and lime zest. Enjoy it as a brew or an espresso.
