Métis are the people who traveled and opened the waterways across Turtle Island. They were the Wood Runners (Coureur Des Bois), the voyageurs, the paddlers, intrepid explorers and translators.
A blend of Guatemalan and Ethiopian coffee.
The Ethiopian coffee is 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 is one of the largest coffee co-ops in the world. Ethiopian coffee has a pronounced, but sweet, acidity with a lot of citrus fruit, jasmine blossom and tea like qualities. It is one of the most unique-tasting coffees in the world. Coffee actually originated in the forests of Ethiopia.
