Where to begin with Rocko Mountain? For many of us, this is the one that made us question what coffee could be. With a pungent, floral aroma and a big hit of booze, Rocko Mountain is impressive before you've even brewed it.
The coffee comes from a group of smallholder farmers, whose cherries are brought together to create the 'Rocko Mountain Reserve'. These cherries are naturally processed, with the sugary fruit of the coffee cherry fermenting around the seeds inside, resulting in Rocko's unmistakable funkiness.
If you're looking for a knockout filter coffee, look no further. Rocko also makes a pretty wild espresso, if you can tame it...

Yirgacheffe is both a town and grade of coffee in Ethiopia. The town itself is located in the Gedeo zone in the Southern Nations and Nationalities Peoples Regional State (SNNPRS) in Southern Ethiopia. More than any other country, Ethiopia has a broad genetic diversity among its coffee varieties, with each type having distinctive taste, shape and colour. As a result, each region in the country can offer a different flavour profile, forming the grading system for Ethiopian coffees e.g. Sidamo, Harrar, Limu, Djimmah etc. It is widely argued that a Yirgacheffe grade coffee can offer one of the most distinctive flavour profiles in the world with pungent floral aroma and intense citrus flavour.
