Our Story: A Coffee Brand Thousands of Years In The Making

Coffee lovers know that Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee and the finest producer of specialty coffee in the world. Now we are excited to let the world in on another coffee secret--that Ethiopia is the source of the finest hand roasting artisans on the planet.

In Ethiopia we don’t just grow coffee. We LIVE coffee each and every day. It's embedded in the DNA of our daily life. Coffee personifies Ethiopia and we in turn personify it. We grow up surrounded by family members harvesting the finest beans and then hand selecting and hand roasting these beans and preparing them into the most magical coffees ever sipped.

Within this milieu we have developed the most gifted coffee artists on the planet, each one steeped in the arts + techniques of selecting and hand roasting Ethiopia’s coffee beans. These artists have the singular talent to bring out the true magical qualities of Ethiopia’s coffee beans.

I began Garden of Coffee so that people everywhere can experience that magic. Because once you taste Ethiopian coffee that has been hand roasted by traditional Ethiopian coffee artisans on our hand crafted ceramic roasters, your coffee perspectives are forever changed.

And so it is my great pleasure to invite you all to come with us and LIVE COFFEE.
