About 0002

Today we're drinking a coffee roasted by Moving Coffee, based out of Revolver's Hometown: Vancouver, B.C.

Moving Coffee is run by husband and wife Shirley and Edmond Keung. They company was originally founded in Hong Kong, but relocated to Vancouver in 2016, where they continue their mission of "moving specialty coffee forward".

The coffees are grown in the Shakisso woreda come from the Guji Zone in the Oromia region, quite a way south and east of the popular region of Yirgacheffe. It’s here that hundreds of producers tend to small plots of land, growing coffee and then delivering the ripe cherry to a nearby washing station to be processed and dried. The coffee is depulped, fermented in underwater tanks and then sent to dry on raised beds for 10-20 days, depending on weather.


Tasting Notes

Moving Coffee's tasting notes were Rootbeer and Hisbiscus, and Raspberry.

Revolver's staff had this to say:

Aromas of Mandarins and Manuka Honey. Bright, lemonade, apricot, peach and green tea.

You can see a theme of Summer and light and bright flavours emerging from the above. This coffee was noticeably pleasant, and even caused one of the writers to make a special note of it.
