The Things I’d Do for Just One neKisse…

Dear coffee lovers,

I have some fantastic news for you! We have just received an amazing new Ethiopian coffee – the Sidamo Nekisse Micro Selection. The proceeds from this coffee are going to imagine1day, a local charity that will use the money to build a school in Ethiopia. The tagline: “coffee educates a nation”.

The backstory:

This coffee comes from the Sidamo region of Ethiopia and is classified as a micro selection. That means it is a small portion of a micro lot, which is a small portion of one harvest. It is of exceptional quality and it is incredibly rare – 49th Parallel is the only roaster in Canada to have access to the green from this selection.

As this is a charity project, we receive no wholesale price on these beans. We pay the same as you.

For those of you who have been with us from the start, remember, if you will, the Ethiopian Aricha micro lot we had last year. The first thing I think of is blueberries. Seriously, that coffee tasted like blueberries in a cup. Now imagine that, but with raspberries and a creamy mouthfeel. Mmmm….

$30/pound. Too steep? Do what Hillary, Roland, and I did – split one! It’s so worth it. The bag is sitting beside me right now, and I am certainly tempted. And there’s a solo press sitting in my cupboard….

$10/cup, served with a free San Pel to de-clutter your palate. In the words of George, from Café Crema: “So good!” Press, or Clover – whatever your heart desires (I recommend a press, but that’s just me).

So come on down and get some before it’s gone!

LOL,

Tim

PS – there’s a rumour going around that certain days at cafca may be more epic than usual. Stay tuned for the sweet and complex deets.
