Introducing Black Label Series, a new line of coffees roasted exclusively for our coffee bar. These exceptional coffees are hand-selected, rigorously tested, and roasted to perfection to highlight each coffee’s intrinsic bouquet of flavors. Our first Black Label release is the acclaimed Amaro Gayo from Ethiopia. Naturally processed and dried on raised-beds, this year’s harvest yielded sweet and vibrant notes of blueberry, raspberry, blackberry, apricot and buttery chocolate.
To indulge in this coffee is to celebrate resilience and perseverance. Amaro Gayo hails from Ethiopia’s only female miller & exporter, entrepreneur Asnakech Thomas. Early in life, Thomas escaped from a forced childhood marriage, eventually making her way to Europe where she excelled as a small-business owner. In time, Thomas returned to Ethiopia to use her skills and business acumen to help her homeland’s coffee sector thrive. And thrive it has. We recommend brewing this coffee as a Pour Over or a French Press. For the espresso lovers, we’re offering Amaro Gayo Espresso Roast, and serving it upon request in espresso drinks. Combined with milk, Amaro Gayo sings notes of blueberry pie. Cheers!
