Take lipton's black tea with lemon and add any missing summer awesomeness. Jasmine, florals and tasty citrus acidity.

In December 2015 we got to visit the Konga Cooperative mill with our partners Interamerican Coffee. It was a beautiful display of community, attention to detail, and focus on quality coffee production. So while this isn’t the first year we are offering this coffee, it has an even more special place in our hearts.

The Konga Cooperative is a smaller coop, part of the larger YCFCU (Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union). This grade 1 lot displays their hard work and dedication. These 2400 smallholder farmers distinguish themselves in their impeccable attention to detail in processing. Ethiopian heirloom varietals are chosen from the forest and transplanted to small gardens, adding a layer of selection to the incredible complexity available among wild coffee plants. Farmers hand-sort for unripe and overripe cherries. Coffee is pulped with a 5 disc Aagaarde pulper and wet fermented for 24-36 hours. After some sorting based on density, the fermented coffee is washed in clean water before drying for 1 to 2 weeks on cloth drying beds. Workers cover the coffee with plastic at midday and at night. Once dried, the coffee is screened 14 and up.

As part of the cooperative’s mission to give back to the community, Konga outfitted a primary school with new supplies and renovated some of the buildings.

Deeper Roots Coffee

Country:  USA

We had already fallen in love with coffee and third place environments, we had learned barista best practices and the ins and outs of coffee equipment, and we had forged a cooperative relationship with a community of coffee farmers in Santa Maria de Jesus, Guatemala. All of these experiences and connections inspired a handful of friends in Cincinnati, Ohio, to form Deeper Roots Coffee as a roasting company in 2011.

With a shared and evolving vision to participate in the specialty coffee movement, we've continued to collaborate with likeminded coffee producers from diverse regions - exploring taste, quality and sustainability. As we've grown, we've been able to roast and share extraordinary coffees with coffee shop owners, chefs, baristas, office workers and home aficionados in Cincinnati and beyond. And we've opened coffee bars of our own to showcase the coffees and to have a creative, hospitable role in local culture.


From those who grow it to those who drink it, among our team and within our communities, we strive to be good for the people.
