Le café / Coffee Circle / Bio

We wanted a certain coffee. Organic. And fair trade.
We choose Coffee Circle.
First, they are very friendly, professionals and they put heart in what they do, in every sense.
They helped us a lot from the beginning in our coffeeshop project and also with training our barista skills. This partnership is truly precious to us.

We love our Expresso coffee.
The beans come from Ethiopia, it's 100% arabica. It has body, a round soft aroma, with chocolate taste and licorice sometimes, and has no acidity or much bitterness.

So beside the taste and the fact that it's organic, for each kilo we buy, one euro goes for a project Coffee Circle support. We choose to participate to the solar panels project. It's about getting solar panels for the health station of Ilketunjo cooperative in Ethiopia.
They also raise money for this cooperative to get the organic label certification.
So the coffee is not certified "fair trade" but to us, action is more valuable than brand.

We sell the Expresso beans (beans or grinded) and also their Yirgacheffe and Limu varieties.As you can see on the pictures, we sell the Chemex in different sizes and shapes, Hario Ice Coffee Makers and the Tsuki-Usagi enamel pot.
And this will be the topic for another post!
About these last japanese pots, you can read about it here on our blog.
