The pure, elegant beauty of washed Ethiopian coffees mixed with the precision and clarity of top Colombian coffees, gives us Villager. It's no secret that this blend is a favorite amongst many of us here at the One Village Coffee HQ. Simply put, it has something for everyone - the modest roast level and the lively acidity appeal to the most demanding “impress-me” coffee pro palates, while the sweetness, balance, and drink-ability make it an obvious choice for a crowd.
We arrived at the current formulation of Villager back in 2016 when we entered the America’s Best Espresso Competition in New York. The roasting team set out on a journey of discovery, cue the dramatic music. Well, maybe less of a journey of discovery, more of a methodical internal competition of sorts to find the espresso we wanted to present at competition. The Ethiopia/Colombia pairing won out amongst us and propelled us to a 3rd place finish at the competition. And so it was to be that Villager would meld lovely Colombian and Ethiopian coffees for many a year, pleasing many a coffee drinker along the way!
