Rare

The world of coffee is like a pyramid. All of the coffee that Colonna selects and curates sits right up the top of that pyramid. The coffees in this genre are the glint at the very tip of the apex. These coffees are sought after and by their very nature are in short supply.

Girma Tekebo Natural


The farm of Girma Tekebo sits within the famous Kochere woreda of South Western Ethiopia, and at 2050 MASL enjoys the ideal climate conditions for the curation of two ancient varietals. Native to the region, the Dega and Gurume plants flourish at the staggeringly high altitude, and provide an incredibly aromatic and creamy cup profile.

Through the Ethiopia Cup, a micro-lot auction that rewards excellence, varieties that in the past would have been lost are given the space to shine, allowing us to pay homage to the diversity of the birthplace of coffee, and the country's many talented producers.

A 100% natural lot, in the cup we are enjoying the deep sweet floral notes of lemon verbena, cherry and hibiscus.
