12oz/340g bag.This coffee is a washed processed Grade 1 from the Chelelektu Washing Station in the Gediyo Zone of Southern Ethiopia in the Kochere woreda.

Coffee is ancient in Ethiopia but coffee farming is not. If the story of Kaldi is true, most writers indicate he would have boogied with his goats in the 8th or 9th Century, but this is difficult to reconcile with the establishment of monasteries in regions where wild coffee was plentiful.  In any case, by the end of the 9th Century coffee was actively being cultivated in Ethiopia as food, but not as a beverage. This is largely an educated guess by those who are educated and guess at such things. It was the Arab world that developed brewing, in most stories, through a series of accidents. The coffee is accidentally roasted, accidentally ground, and accidentally put in water. By the time Constantinople fell to the Ottomans in 1453, the good news was, they brought coffee.
