Quiz any coffee pro on what their “desert island” coffee would be and, without fail, Ethiopia or Kenya will top the list of coffees they can’t live without. It’d be hard for us to disagree. In Ethiopia – coffee’s birthplace – the native soils nurture trees with everything they need to develop cherries with unrivaled flavor. In neighboring Kenya, similar soils and meticulously efficient farming systems create flavors that are slightly different, but equally remarkable. So what do you get if you carefully blend top lots from both these coffee-producing powerhouses? Miles and miles of cane sugar sweetness, start to finish balance and stonefruit flavors that just won’t quit. Marathoner Blend is East African coffee at its best.
