The Lamp Post

Coffee has a way of bringing people together. Since making its way from Ethiopia to the rest of the world, people of almost every culture have enjoyed coffee. We want to honor the place where it all started by offering this coffee sourced from the Derikocha wash station, which is located in the Guji Zone of Oromia and is owned and operated by Ashenafi Woressa. Around 650 producers living in the surrounding communities produce this amazing coffee. Ripe cherries are delivered the Derikocha wash station where they are sorted, immediately placed on raised beds, and dried for 15 to 20 days. Raised drying beds are carefully constructed to ensure proper air circulation and temperature control for an optimal drying process. Cherries are also turned regularly on the beds to prevent damage. Once dried, the beans are transported to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, to be milled and prepared for export. We roast these indigenous cultivar beans with care in small batches to bring out the notes of berries, lemon zest, and chocolate.

How Much Coffee Should I Order?

Our whole bean coffees come in 12 oz bags. Brewing methods, cup size, and preference all will affect how far it will go, but a 12 oz bag should be about a two-week supply for 1-2 coffee drinkers. You can always increase, decrease, or pause your subscription if needed.

Keep in mind, you want your coffee to be fresh, so don’t order too many bags at once. It’s best to keep your order spaced out so we can deliver you the freshest and best tasting coffee.
