Year after year the 71,000 grower members of the Sidama Union cooperative produce some of the worlds best washed coffees. Their Natural Process lot never disappoints. A customer favorite every year as a limited edition, it is finally back and here to stay! Grown in the motherland of coffee, this lot is meticulously prepared and sure to please those of you who love fruity, natural processed coffees.


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.
