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've had the 93 point Ethiopians but this one takes the cake over all! In more than a decade of roasting I've never tasted as much in a coffee, true toasted nut in the foretaste and an apricot blueberry aftertaste. Fantastic coffee. (view)

Hi there, Gitesi will make a return in the coming weeks as we recently received a fresh arrival. We definitely have samples of Majirani available, and I recommend it if you're looking for an African blend that works well as a dual use coffee / espresso option.
