Driving around Kenyan coffee country with various agronomists, Passenger's green coffee buyer, David Stallings, was continuously being told information that didn't line up with what we so certainly believe to be true based on what is in the cup.
Green coffee is Ethiopia's most important export item, but coffee doesn’t do it alone. There are unsung heroes of the plant kingdom that allow coffee, and the people who produce it, to thrive in Ethiopia.
In sourcing our Reserve Lots traceability and quality are focused on just as much as when sourcing our seasonal offerings. Seasonality and purpose, on the other hand, are thrown out the window.
Every coffee we buy for Passenger is special. Every sample we receive is rigorously tasted, and re-tasted to make sure it is a coffee we would be proud to sell to our customers.
