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. (more…)
