Why we love it: Stone fruit sweetness with delicate floral notes. We roast Biloya lighter to really let its aromatics shine. This is a French press favorite in our house for a clean & crisp morning wake up call or an afternoon pick-me-up. Also lovely as a pour over or Chemex brew, thanks to its abundance of flavor.
Who it comes from: Ethiopia Biloya is grown by smallholder farms - single families who operate a plot of land, who band together as a group of producers. This gives them better access to the market and its resources, like training, and industry innovation.
Why it matters: Biloya is named for the washing station that services the town's many traditional, often smaller, family farms. Thanks to a partnership with the Ethiopian Commodities Exchange, the families are guaranteed a more standardized wage for their harvest, regardless of volume and/or acreage.
