Coffee Shrub

Coffee is a multi-stemmed, gangly, awkward, diminutive shrub. Coffee Shrub is dimunitive too; a micro-seller of coffee serving shops that roast. We sell green coffee in batches that equal roughly a bit less than 1/2 or 3/4 of a traditional jute bag packaged in Grain-Pro lined bags, at either 50lbs. or 100lbs. You have the convenience of thorough, descriptive reviews as a starting point for your own tasting notes and also relevant information about the farms, including images that you can use to promote the coffee. Look over our coffees and see if any of these offerings would complement your current list.

I noticed you had coffee from Opung BR in your archives. Is this one from a different collector, HR? It's my understanding that this is a naming convention in Sumatra; Opung meaning "grandmother" and HR/BR referring to her eldest son. Correct? Either way, this one is delicious.(view)

Sorry to hear about that. It can happen of course, especially from the drying patio ...but it shouldn't. That should come out in precleaning in the dry mill. What I have seen is a pocket of these in one section of a lot, or even one bag. It makes me think that somewhere a cache of stones or patio fragments collected in a machine was jarred loose....(view)

First coffee from Shrub that I've noticed lots of stones/pebbles in. Gotta be diligent with this one! But no points off for flavor.(view)

Hey David, there is a chance that we may revisit this blend in the future, but it should be noted that the majority of the blends that we offer are not repeating blends and are the result of particular coffees that we thought would go well together. Keep your eye out though for more Ethiopia focused blends in the future.(view)
