It’s that time of year. Every year, people gather around to wait to hear the news with bated breath. As the clock ticks closer to midnight, there’s only one thing on their mind; yes, that’s exactly right, a new Natural-Processed Ethiopian coffee from Dapper! Now, you might be wondering, “Didn’t they just have a new Ethiopian Dur Feres Natural Process?” – to which I say, yes we did!
Welcome to the lineup, our new Ethiopia Natural Wush Wush Ginbo from the Keffa region. That’s right! Keffa (or Kaffa), the origin of coffee itself! For those of you who don’t know, the story of coffee as we know it originated with a sheep herder named Kaldi and his dancing goats. He noticed one day that his sheep seemed extra energized after eating some cherries, so he decided to try some himself. A few steps down the line and now coffee is a beverage enjoyed world-wide! Imagine being the person to stumble upon a hit like that?
Speaking of hits, our Winter Wonderblend is doing so well we’re keeping it active in our catalog for the rest of January! This blend actually features our new Natural Wush Wush, which brings a lovely bright note to an otherwise deep and comforting blend. Draw whatever parallels you may like from that!
Going into this new year 2023, we could all stand to learn a little from Kaldi. To observe, to question, and to welcome new experiences into our lives, maybe even just to dance like some hyper-active goats! You may just find yourself the next pioneer of a world-wide hit. Take care of yourselves! Drink water (and coffee)!
