June's Coffee Club: Kaldi the Goat-Herder & the Story of Coffee

 A little story about this coffee:

 In the Yirga Cheffe region of Ethiopia, coffee trees grow wild.  Coffee was discovered and invented here. Legend has it that Kaldi, a goat-herder, roamed the Ethiopian highlands and noticed that his goats, after eating berries from a certain tree, became so lively and spirited that they didn’t want to sleep during the night! 

 The coffee you are about to receive is from the source.  It’s like eating clam chowder in New England, or trying a Hefeweizen beer in Bavaria, Germany…every other coffee in the world is trying to be this. There. Is. No. Comparison.

 We’re pleased to offer this wet-processed heirloom coffee to our subscribers.  It scored a whopping 93 points (our highest scoring coffee to date) with tasting notes of honey and delicate florals.  It’s potent, so be ready to buzz.  You might taste a toffee, caramel, or tropical fruit vibe.  Go with it.

 This coffee can take milk, but it’s not necessary.  We recommend using a drip or pour-over method for this one.  If you haven’t invested in a pour-over cone (usually around $15-$60) we highly recommend it! Visit our blog at bedfellowsroasting.com to see brewing guides. This coffee is versatile: messing with grind size will highlight or mute the bright, fruited qualities of your cup.
