Ethiopia has a rich history with coffee. It's commonly known as the birthplace of coffee and has been exporting it, historians believe, since the 1600s. No other country has more varieties of the coffee plant or can offer a wider range of flavors.

Ethiopian coffees are often the perfect bean for those who prefer the lighter side of coffee: fruity and floral notes over earthiness, brighter over bolder. This one is from Guji, which borders the better-known Yirgacheffe and Sidama regions. It's naturally processed and dried on raised beds, which you can see here in the video.

The fruitiness in this coffee is over the top. A friend calls it a "fruit bomb." You can smell it before you grind it and even before we roast it. And then when you do grind it, the fragrance is almost overwhelming. Some days it's like strawberries; other days, blueberries.

And with every pound of Ethiopian coffee we roast, we're helping school kids in the nearby community of Altea Wondo eat a healthy lunch. We're partnering with Common River and one pound = $1 for the school lunch program they run.

Common River started a community development program in Aleta Wando a decade ago by building a primary school. One of the issues they face is poor school attendance, which causes poor academic performance. Hungry kids are more likely to miss school, but the good news is that Common River is already feeding 1 in 5 students in Aleta Wondo. Let's make it 5 in 5!

So how much of an impact will this coffee make? Just $2 dollars will feed one student for a day. We'd love it if you joined the cause.
