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
Testi Ayla Washing Station was founded in 2010 and became part of the Testi group in 2016. It now serves about 375 smallholder farmers in the village of Bombe in Sidama, near the Bombe Mountain. Producers here own an average of 2.5 hectares and grow varieties such as Mikicho and Setami, which are local coffees.
Coffees in Ethiopia are typically traceable to the washing station level: The average producer here delivers their cherry to the washing station, where it is blended with other producers' deliveries and processed as necessary.
