Kola Whole Bean Coffee from Small Planes
We’re so excited to partner with our friends and neighbors over at Small Planes Coffee, a local roastery just down the street from us! They created Small Planes in 2017 to pursue honest, accountable, and fair partnerships that connect quality-focused coffee producers to you, and it shows! For a limited time, we are offering one of their unique, small batch blends: Kola. In this coffee, you can find notes of watermelon and jasmine in the aromas followed by juicy flavors of pomegranate and nectarine on the palate. As this coffee cools, you’ll experience those flavors turn sweeter, reminding us of watermelon hard candy and florals reminiscent of chamomile.

Telila Washing station operated by Mike Mamo and his team has the ability to separate lots upon arrival and this specific lot comes from the Kola Kebele – a regional designation in Ethiopia. Telila takes an unorthodox approach to lot separation in Ethiopia by separating the cherry by the region it was delivered from making this is an especially unique relationship among the coffee value chain in Ethiopia that is a specific variety from a specific community. This amount of specification shows in it’s cup profile that is full of flavor clarity with bright sparkling acidity.
