JOE PAGAC COLLABORATION SERIES
Since 2011, Yellow Brick Coffee has celebrated coffee producing communities around the globe by sharing stories of its producers and uniquely roasting its coffees. By teaming up with Joe Pagac for this limited release, we are proud to honor our local community as well. Joe Pagac is a local painter and sculptor whose colorful murals liven up buildings and streets all over Tucson. We hope you enjoy this celebration of community and collaboration as much as we do.
THE ORIGIN STORY
This coffee comes from a washing station in Kebado, a village (or kebele") in the woreda of Dara in the Sidama region of Ethiopia. This region is in southern Ethiopia and is known for its high-quality coffee. In fact, most of the highest quality that comes from Ethiopia can be traced back to the Sidama region.
Coffees in Ethiopia are typically traceable to the washing station level, where smallholder farmers—many of whom own less than 1/2 hectare of land, and as little as 1/8 hectare on average—deliver cherry by weight to receive payment at a market rate. The coffee is sorted and processed into lots without retaining information about whose coffee harvest is in which bag or which lot.
