Ethiopians were the first people to drink coffee, and you can easily see where the history and the future of coffee meet while sharing a beer with Israel. He embodies a deep connection to the origins of coffee, and he's "all in" on producing exceptional harvests year after year. Even though he's a large producer, he is continually looking for new ways to better his craft.

Israel Degfa showed me that passion transcends all boundaries – he is masterfully forward thinking, and he pursues excellence without any thought to alternatives. It is rare for a farmer to produce high volumes of superb Gesha, but Israel's creative processes have made this possible. Join us in Yirgacheffe where Israel has dedicated an entire farm to produce an exotic and rare variety of coffee, a really great, everyday drinking Gesha.
