  • About this coffee
  • Put. The. Milk, Down. It's a Mule rule for stunningly floral, crisp & refreshing coffees from Ethiopia. Especially when he goes and seeks out one of the very best from Heile Gebre who runs the Shakisso Farm & mill and the local small holders. As Heile is personally involved, each step is as particular & clean as the coffee that results, so you owe it to them to drink it neat, to get the blast of earl grey and citrus that makes this highland forest coffee so special.
  • Here is a Mule who wants to look on the bright side of things. He does. He's tried really hard to be that little ray of sunshine, to be fine with it all.
  • But he's not really that type. The mere sight of Robusta beans or instant coffee crumples his brow and clenches his jaw.
  • After all, good coffee is never a matter of taking it easy - flavour doesn't just 'turn up'. It needs to be cultivated by expert growers, coaxed by obsessive roasters, and given the 'Hooves up' by the fussiest critic there is.
  • Packaged in a protective atmosphere.
  • Organic

Preparation and Usage

  • The Mule Rules
  • (A Quick Brewing Guide)
  • 1. Choose your weapon
  • Grumpy Mule coffees are suitable for use in a wide range of brewing equipment. For espresso machines, finely grind your beans or choose espresso grind for best results.
  • 2. Load up
  • Use 2 heaped dessert spoonfuls (those big ones your mum only had out for special occasions) of fresh, ground coffee per cup. If you want to be a nerd about it that's 15g per 250ml of coffee.
  • Espresso heads, a good dose for our coffee is 14-18g per double shot with an extraction time of about 27 seconds. Just don't count mississipily (watch friends, it'll make sense).
  • 3. Fire!
  • Allow heated water to come off the boil (about 93-95º) before pouring. It's just enough time to tweet a pic of the pack at a jaunty angle. Serve the coffee immediately once brewed.
