As a company, we value intentionality in our relationships, and this coffee is a prime example of that. Over a decade ago, C&C owner Chuck was working in Ethiopia for the nonprofit Technoserve’s East African Coffee Initiative, where he first met team members of coffee importer Trabocca. The relationship they have maintained for the past 10 years became an integral part of the origins of Cat & Cloud, leading to many of our current partnerships in Ethiopia and Kenya!
Smooth, fruity, and sweet, this fun Yirgacheffe coffee opens with a bright sweet/tart juiciness, transitions into a deeper melon-like body, and ends with a buttery smooth mouthfeel. Reko is a great choice for someone who is already familiar with specialty coffee and is looking for those lighter, tea-like characteristics of African coffees.
