About the blend: Métis are the people who traveled and opened the waterways across Turtle Island. They were the Wood Runners (Coureurs des Bois), the voyageurs, the paddlers, the intrepid explorers, the translators. A blend of Ethiopian and Guatemalan coffees. The Ethiopian coffee comes from the Sidamo region of Ethiopia from a co-op called Oromia Coffee Farmers Co-operative Union. The Union is comprised of over 200 different co-ops and represents over 200,000 farmer members. It's one of the largest coffee co-ops in the world!
