A beautiful example of an unwashed Ethiopian coffee from the Sidama Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (SCFCU) in central Ethiopia. The SCFCU was started in 2001 to bring Sidamo coffee to both the international and local markets. Now the SCFCU represents 51 smaller cooperatives consisting of more than 76,000 small farming families.  These farmers usually grow their coffee on low density plots using indigenous trees to provide shade. The farmers in the coop enjoy the flexibility to either sell their coffee right away, or sell the coffee into the coop and receive a second payment after the harvest has sold.  This practice essentially turns the coop into a savings account for the farmers’ more than 10,000 pounds of coffee.


Roasts

Depending on origin, growing region, and style of preparation, every coffee carries a unique set of physical and flavor characteristics, affected by such factors as longitude and latitude, amount of sun, shade, rainfall, cloud cover, soil content, nitrogen and minerals, and other factors.

As roasters, our job is to recognize and identify for our guests those special flavor characteristics that define a particular coffee, and determine the roasting methodology that will enhance these very special flavors.

Coffee Exchange offers 5 distinct roasts.  Each coffee is available in the roast(s) that suits its finest characteristics.

American Roast: Light brown in color with a dry surface, this roast is characterized by a light body and a bright, piquant flavor.

Full City Roast: A little darker, this roast creates a rich, sweet, full-bodied and complex cup. 

Vienna Roast:  Even darker, this roast brings the ambrosial coffee oils to the surface of the bean and brews a savory, pleasantly bittersweet cup.

French Roast: This roast results in a dark, oily bean with a bold flavor and a heady aroma. 

Espresso Roast: As dark as possible in pursuit of a densely flavored cup.
