From the Guracho washing station in the Sidamo Guji region of Ethiopia, this natural coffee reminds us of grade school butter cookies, honey suckle, kiwi, and a hung cherry starburst . It was sourced through Mayorga Organics and Atlas Coffee Traders, and roasted in collaboration with Ethnos Coffee to be drank black while listening to southern rap. Ethiopian coffee isn't the expected drink of choice for a hip hop studio that has recorded the likes of Memphis rap legends 8ball and MJG, but for us it was the norm. We spent most of the last two years recording live hip hop improvisation sessions over freshly brewed pour-overs. We called it On the Spot. Hip hop is all about the vibe, and although we all loved coffee, there was always some dissonance, getting coffee from third wave coffee shops and leaving to go record a bunch of freestyled bars over trap drums and blues guitar.
