Keywords: Bean, Roasting, Origin Coffee

Monthly subscriptions are roasted on the first tuesday of each month, mailed with An post on wednesday to arrive with you on the thursday. The only exception to this is in January where it is roasted on the second tuesday as couriers aren’t operating so early in the new year.

We always offer 10-12 coffees online, some of which will come and go with the seasons. We buy in small volumes which allows us to provide you with fresh and current crops. In addition to this, we are passionate about ‘Roasting and Posting’ ie roasting on the tuesdays and posting on wednesdays – it simply can’t get much fresher than that ! Being small and organised in this fashion, and being focused on estate and origin coffee allows us to present to you a unique product which we believe is hard to beat.

To purchase:

  • simply choose whole bean or grind,
  • KEEP the selction package at 227g: Do not choose any other size at this point. Other size selections from this page will be refunded.
  • eg, for a 12month x 227g subscription of whole beans you will see a total of €99.50, an extra €2.70 will be added before final checkout, bringing the total to €102.20

Badger & Dodo: {Africa} Ethiopia: Harar

Processing refers to the method of getting the bean from a cherry to the dried bean which is then roasted into a dry brittle bean for grinding – sometimes a choice which is forced on growers due to water shortages. Harar has rich red and blue berry flavours sitting over a thick body and uplifting acidity, being the longberry variety means it is smoother and sweeter.


Badger & Dodo: {Africa} Ethiopia: Operation Cherry Red Yirgacheffe

I had always aimed for a light roast but I couldn’t help developing it in the roaster a little longer to get that sweet orange and more of an even roast. We started buying in 60kg jute bags, then moved to 60kg Grainpro bags and now, the ultimate, vacuum packed in 20kg bags … this is Operation Cherry Red. We also pay more to go through a broker who stores all coffee in transit in humidity controlled warehouses AND vacuum packed in 20kg bags.


Badger & Dodo: {Africa} Rwanda: Musasa Co-Op

This transformational programme was aimed at switching the focus in the Rwandan coffee sector from an historic emphasis on quantity to one of quality – and so opening up Rwanda to the far higher-earning specialty coffee market. The programme and its successor, SPREAD, have been invaluable in helping Rwanda’s small-scale coffee farmers to rebuild their production in the wake of the devastating 1994 genocide and the 1990s world coffee crash.
