ABOUT THIS COFFEE

This coffee comes from the Aricha station, formerly known as the highly coveted Misty Valley station and sometimes called Idido. This station is located at around 1,925 MASL in the Yirgacheffe highlands of southern Ethiopia. Approximately 700 small holder farmers contribute their coffee to this station.

Aricha is about 8 kilometers from the center of Yirgacheffe Town. The coffee is picked ripe between November and January, depulped within 12 hours, and washed clean with spring water. The soils in this region are red-brown clay soil, about 1.5 meters deep.

    I first tried Modest coffee (the Collector) at the Farmers Market in Naperville and just loved the taste. So excited that I can continue to enjoy it in the fall and winter months as well! Great taste and flavor with mild citrusy undertones!

  2. Suzanne Kolars (verified owner)

    This coffee is so delicious, hot and cold! When I received the first bag, I noticed the roast date was only a few days before! I have never had coffee so fresh! I grind it and brew it in a french press. I make it extra strong and keep the brewed coffee in the refrigerator. I use this extra strong coffee to make lattes and iced coffees.I have never tasted coffee with a flavor so tasty and fresh. I want to drink it all day.

    Just like Suzanne said, it’s pretty wonderful to get coffee that has been literally roasted just a few days at most.

    Excellent quality. I always like a good light roast, and have been getting pickier over the years. I ordered online, came reliably, tastes great.
