WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF COFFEE:
Magnolia is my love letter to espresso. It delights in those surprisingly fruity shots with bright and sparkling acidity. It always seeks out sweetness paired with stunning clarity and vibrancy. It is all the best aspects of modern espresso and works to remind me that the possibilities for a good cup are endless when we forever seek coffees that are in bloom.  

ORIGIN:

This crop comes by way of Aleco at Red Fox and Dagne Chomen of Welichu Wachu. Dagne ran quality control for many years at the Oromia Cooperative Union before starting his own washing station network, which includes Muda Tatesa. He works very closely with farmers in the Ugo Begne and Yabitu Koba forests and employs over 750 people at his three processing sites. This lot is an impressive 90% Kudum (which is commonly recognized as Bourbon). This is our third time offering Mada Tatesa and it has really become a crowd favourite version of Magnolia.

 
FLAVOUR:
Magnolia's aim is always sugary fruit, lively floral notes, and bright acidity, making Muda Tatesa a perfect fit. It is like a bright and summery day at the beach. There are wave upon wave of flavours, starting with peach and nectarine, cascading into tropical notes of papaya and mango and crashing into a florality that smells and tastes like fresh cut flowers. The finish is all coconut and cream.
