Daanissa - Ethiopia

'There aren't many things that get Team Foundry as excited as a new coffee from the Guji region of Ethiopia'. This is how we started our description of our insanely popular Dambi Udo from last year. This coffee is from the same washing station and it's amazing, but quite different!

In the cup, you can expect some really intriguing flavour. We get a wonderful ripe blueberry note, followed by a hint of liquorice and a finish that reminds us of black tea. So, this isn't your classic natural Guji fruit bomb but it is supremely classy, intriguing and thoroughly moreish. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do, it's sheer class.

Daannisa is the name of a sub kebele (Hamlet) where the this group of 37 farmers are located. Average farm size of each member is 3.35 hectares. The coffee grows under a canopy of natural forest, much like most of Guji Coffees in the area.

The fertile red land is made of Clay and Loam.

All of these farmers are trained in agronomy and post-harvest practices by the "King of Guji", Ture Waji. What's unique about how these drying stations are managed are the drying beds themselves: each day lot is tracked with a tag for each bed, listing the specific delivery and the start date of drying and relative Moisture Content Readings for each day.

Another fantastic roast from Foundry and great new packaging

The Daanissa - Ethiopia is amazing. I brew it through a Wilfa batch brew machine and it's great. Just make sure the brew time is 5-6 , minutes. Doesn't need to be too coarsely ground , I have it on the start of the aeropress setting on my Wilfa grinder.

Great bean

Great taste. Nice berry tones coming through

Another good one

Great balance between fruit acid and dark cream


Awesome coffee great company. Great taste use a v60, hits the spot for me.

Blueberry bomb

This is a stunning coffee. Brewing with a french press (20g coffee with 300ml) I get a hit of blueberry + bitter tea.
This is the first coffee I've been able to get genuine fruity taste from.
