Dur Feres means "Wild Horse" in Amharic. It is an ode to an Ethiopian coffee legend, Mohamed Ogsady, whose Harar Horse coffee with its thick blueberry puree and chocolate notes is a thing of notoriety and sweet nostalgia. This particular lot of Dur Feres is sourced from Aklilu Kassa, whose family, according to legend, built “the road into Guji.” Deeply rooted in the area, he and his family own or support a wide network of washing stations and farms, many of which are Organic Certified. This is a community lot from the West Guji Zone of Oromia in Ethiopia. This is also another beautiful Farm Gate coffee that is great as espresso.
