This coffee was only made possible through the cooperation between the farmers, producers, Tri-Up Coffee in Taiwan (special thanks to Erik!), and our founder, Tetsu — working together as friends.
Tetsu decided to name this exceptional coffee "Tomodachi," which means "friend" in Japanese, to express our immense gratitude.
This coffee is...
This coffee is processed with a unique method designed by Tetsu himself for a limited batch.
The taste is a complex yet divine experience. Depending on the temperature, you may detect flavors such as raspberry, tropical fruit, stone fruit, white grape, and muscat.
The aroma may remind you of purple flowers and perfume. Meanwhile, the texture and sensation are juicy yet transparent with a medium body and thick mouthfeel.

This exquisite coffee was made using the following Double Anaerobic Honey Process designed by our founder, Tetsu, World Brewers Cup Champion.
- We selected only ripe cherries with Brix over 23.
- Put them into the airtight barrels for the first fermentation for two days.
- Pulp them, and gather pulps and juice.
- Place back into the barrels for 2nd fermentation stage for two days again.
- They are dried on a shaded African bed.
After the first fermentation from ripening cherries, I found dark wine red juice in the barrel. I tasted it. At first, I braced myself, but it tasted so lovely!! This was when we knew we had something truly remarkable.
When we opened the barrel after Stage Two, we were greeted by a divine aroma of super ripe bananas, mangos, and tropical fruits. We high-fived each other!
We are trying to make the best coffee ever from Ethiopia. We still lack knowledge, facilities, and funds but intend to continue investing to achieve this goal. Join us on this journey by becoming a regular customer, and enjoy experiencing the evolution of our coffee.
