Ethipoia Kochere

If you’ve been into Contraband you’ll have noticed that we’re really into pour-overs. To start the new year we’ve debuted a new coffee and with it we’re doing something that we’ve never done before: had two coffees from the same country – at the same time – in our pour-over line up!

They are Ethiopia Yirgacheffe “Kochere” and Ethiopia Sidamo “Guji”.

Bring your coworker to Fifth Street or your partner to Larkin so that one of you can get a Guji and the other a Kochere – just hope the other person will share because these coffees are awesome! Don’t limit yourself to a pour-over either. These two coffees are also a part of our cold brew and single-origin espresso rotations.

We’re excited to start 2018 with two Ethiopias that are super on point and surprisingly different!
