Entimos ~ ἔντιμος (en’-tee-mos) - adj; held in honor, precious; highly valued, distinguished, noble

Entimos Coffee Roasters started because two guys believed people shouldn’t drink bad coffee. Roasting separately, it wasn’t long before Matt and Tim began exchanging notes on roast profiles and critiquing each other’s coffee. This collaboration caught the interest of friends and family. Soon they began receiving requests for fresh roasted coffee and Entimos Coffee Roasters was born.

Entimos stands on the conviction that coffee is a sensory experience from the time it is planted in the ground until it is tasted in the cup. The same bean roasted one day will taste different the next; from one brewed method to another it will develop subtleties in flavor. There is no single cup that is the “best” coffee. This is what makes coffee so exceptional. The unique experience found in each sip is what drives us to find and roast coffee, giving attention to every detail so that we can share that same experience with others.

As a micro roaster in this wonderful coffee community, our goal is to candidly focus on only a few coffees at a time. Throughout the month we will sample various roast profiles and give you the opportunity to participate with us.

Your coffee will never sit on a grocery store shelf waiting to be purchased. All of our online sales of coffee are roasted and shipped within 24 hours.

It is our goal to educate consumers about the superiority of fresh, single-origin coffee, and contribute to the ongoing conversation, development and improvements in the specialty coffee industry.

This is a grade 1 coffee from Wolichu Wachu in the Uraga District, Oromia. The washing station works alongside 4500 smallholders in the area, who farm small parcels of prime coffee growing territory, an average of half a hectare. Well drainage fertile clay soils, yearly rainfall levels of 1500 - 2000mm and soaring altitudes of up to 2300 masl all contribute to Wolichu Wachu's output and profile. Unusual for Ethiopia, around 90% of coffee delivered to Wolichu Wachu for processing is Bourbon. Picking season is from January to end of February.
Established in 2017, Wolichu Wachu produce both fully washed and natural process coffees. The new infrastructure has been designed and built to limit the use of water pumps and to work with maximum efficiency. The process for washed coffees involves meticulous sorting, followed by screening and floating, which is incorporated by the station's state of the art depulper, which sorts lights and floaters into different tanks after it has removed the pulp from the cherry. After this, the coffee is soaked in clean water in tanks for between 36 and 72 hours. Water is sourced from spring water.
Next, the coffee is pushed through grading channels to clean and sort the coffee by density, before the top qualities undergo a further soaking period of between 8 -12 hours.
Drying at Wolichu Wachu is done in the lower field at the station. Pre-drying on separate tables is done to remove excess water from soaking, and additional sorting is carried out. After a day, it is then moved to raised beds where it is turned and dried for approximately 12 days.
