Nearly every high quality variety of coffee originated from one of two varietals of the coffee species arabica: either Typica or Bourbon. These two coffee varietals were disseminated from Ethiopia, coffee's birthplace, to Yemen and from there to the rest of the world.  Because of this, coffee grown all over the world has practically no genetic differentiation.  Taste differences results primarily from microclimates, processing methods, and geographic conditions.  

Arabica var. Rume Sudan

The Rule Sudan varietal is an old and rarely found varietal that originated somewhere along the border of Ethiopia and Sudan. Recently, it was bred with a Coffee Leaf Rust resistant varietal to produce an F-1 hybrid that achieved a rare and coveted score of 90/100 at the Cup of Excellence (ACE). Coffea Diversa, located at 1350 meters above the sea near the border of Panama, is one of the few farms in the world that is successfully growing Rume. Brothers Ricardo and Gonzalo's farm is closer to a coffee garden however.  The two brothers who own and run it specialize in unique varietals, such as purparescens, Dilla Alghe, Sudan Rume, and Gesha, and we're thankful to be offering such a wonderful coffee!

The coffee starts has complex and balanced flavors. The body is light and the sugar levels are high. Combined with a mild acidity, this coffee is like fruit juice made of apple, meyer lemon, grape, and pineapple. It has subtle spice and floral tones that add layers of complexity.

Arabica var. Dilla Alghe

The Dilla Alghe varietal originates the Ethiopian town of Dilla Alghe (ergo the name). These trees are not uncommon in Ethiopia, but extremely so outside of it. They yield low, are susceptible to disease, and produce a wonderful cup of coffee.

Floral notes abound. Lavender and fruit show up in the cup along with a wonderfully crisp, high intensity, and refreshing acidity. The finish is fruit-soaked and resonant.

A Note on Shipping: This coffee only ships on the last Wednesday of the month.
