Telila, Ethiopia - Odd Kin Coffee Roasters

Another aromatic and complex Ethiopian coffee from the Odd Kin roastery in Bristol.

Telila Washing Station, aka ‘Mike’s Washing Station, is owned and operated by agronomist Mike Mamo. Mike knows a thing or two about specialty coffee, especially concerning processing coffee in the mountainous forests of his native Jimma province. Coffees from Jimma are renowned for being bright and more ‘full’ than those of Yirgacheffe and Sidamo, and this one follows suit with tasting notes of sweet apricot, a healthy dose of grapefruit acidity and some classic black tea character.

At Telila, lots are processed not only by Kebele (administrative area) but also by day of harvest, so that their batches can be incredibly finely tuned.

For this honey processed coffee, cherries are brought to Telila from around 50 local growers who farm at around 2000MASL, and are then pulped and fermented overnight and dried in their mucilage for up to 20 days, all in these smaller lots.

Odd Kin Coffee Roasters is the brainchild of former Rugby pro Sam Smith who wanted a fulfilling life after retiring through injury and found that in coffee. We’re glad he did, because Odd Kin are creating some exciting stuff down in Bristol and they’re still only 2!

After opening a coffee shop and with the brief interruption of the pandemic, they decided to begin roasting their own coffee beans and Odd Kin was born. The team at Odd Kin source their coffees seasonally from green importers and only ever buy speciality coffees graded above 83 points, so you know you’ll always be getting the best coffee of the moment from these top tier roasters.
