How to brew: 

Try it black, on the stronger side. Sipping it slowly is always best for a single origin bean, so you can experience the full scope of what it's about. As it cools down the flavour will change bringing something new with each sip.

The story: 

Roasting alongside the Kaipara River in Te Awaroa “valley of the long river”, Mike is a master of specialty coffee. He roasts small batches and educates people about the beans, origins, and the craft that goes into a good brew. The Ethiopian Guji (one of his favorites) is from the Oromia Region. This natural processed coffee exhibits a stunning peach flavour with a brown sugar sweetness. I find its quite a mallow flovour in general. Mike has made it a light to medium roast bringing out its natural aspects. It's got a low bitterness, average acidity and slightly more sweetness giving it a well rounded feel and nice cup to drink.
