The future of processing.

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. Anaerobic Washed coffees aren't commonplace in Ethiopia, and this coffee is a harbinger of the future.
