A Blend From:
The pure, elegant beauty of washed Ethiopian coffees. The precision and clarity of top Colombian coffees. Villager is the marriage of these two pillars of specialty coffee. It’s no secret that Villager is the favorite amongst many of us here at One Village Coffee HQ. It has something for everyone - the modest roast level and the lively acidity appeal to the most demanding coffee pro palates, while the sweetness, balance, and drinkability 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, hahaha. Well, less a journey of discovery, more a methodical internal competition of sorts to find the espresso we wanted to present at competition. The Ethiopia/Colombia pairing won out in the internal competition and propelled us to a 3rd place finish. And, so it was to be that Villager would meld lovely Colombian and Ethiopian coffees for years to come!
You could say Villager is our most articulate and nuanced blend. And you’d be right about that. The backbone of the flavor profile is a mouthwatering sweetness reminiscent of raw sugar and honey. Floral accents, dried fruit, and a bright citrus acidity round out the profile. Villager currently features Ethiopia Idido and Colombia La Cumbre.
