Holiday Espresso


A light roast espresso.

The Shakiso, and Guji areas of the south of Ethiopia are spectacular in both the terrain and its people. In relatively close proximity to Yirgacheffe, and with soaring altitude, the flavour profiles in the coffee here are some of our favourites from the entire country.

This particular lot is a stunning example of the breadth of flavour diversity you can expect from Shakiso. With jammy peach, vibrant acidity, yielding to lavender and tea rose, this is a single origin espresso that is destined to knock the socks off the loved ones you share it with this season.
