Ethiopia Guji Uraga - Espresso & Filter

Padre Coffee (Melbourne)
SGD 20.50

Among coffee-producing countries, Ethiopia holds near-legendary status not only because it’s regarded as the “birthplace” of Arabica coffee, but also because it is simply unlike every other place in the coffee world. Unlike the vast majority of coffee-growing countries, the plant was not introduced as a cash crop through colonization. Instead, growing, processing, and drinking coffee is part of the everyday way of life, and has been for centuries, since the trees were discovered growing wild in forests and eventually cultivated for household use and commercial sale.

The majority of Ethiopia’s farmers are smallholders and sustenance farmers, with less than 1 hectare of land apiece; in many cases it is almost more accurate to describe the harvests as “garden coffee,” as the trees do sometimes grow in more of a garden or forest environment than what we imagine fields of farmland to look like.

This washed coffee is an example of ‘garden coffee’ - various smallholder producers delivered cherries to the Uraga washing station for processing. In Uraga, coffee is grown on very small farms alongside corn, barley, beans, and wheat.

Padre Coffee (Melbourne)
Padre Coffee (Melbourne) was born in Brunswick East back in late 2007/early 2008. We started small, roasting, brewing and selling all of our coffee under the one roof in the heart of the community; making friends, having fun and learning as we went. Our Victorian HQ and roastery is still here in Brunswick East, and a lot of our first customers are as well – in fact, we’re proud to say that it’s thanks to the support of loyal, coffee-loving locals that we’ve grown up to be the company we are today.

As of 2017, we have two beautiful stores selling coffee beans and brews in Melbourne as well as a stunning roastery-cafe now open in Noosa. After years refining the process while roasting for ourselves, the Padre family has also grown to include a handful of special cafes & venues in Victoria and on the Sunshine Coast.

At the same time, not much has changed.
Padre is still a small, owner-run business that prides itself on exceptional products and outstanding service. We love making coffee.

We can be very particular (some would say obsessive) about the way it is produced, prepared and presented.

Our dedicated roasting team put all of their time and energy into the curation of a diverse, accessible and ever-changing range of premium single origin and blended coffee beans, which we’re proud to source from traders and farmers all around the world that know the value of quality and believe - as we do - in ethical and sustainable production.

We roast our coffee in small, loving batches; juggling time, temperature and air-flow to create a fulfilling flavour profile for each bean. It's a pleasure to taste and test our coffee exhaustively, and to brew with the very best equipment. At Padre we drink coffee every way we know how, and are devoted to the education and information that will help our customers to get the best out of every cup.

We make a point of hiring dedicated, switched-on individuals and on training them from the ground up, which helps to ensure that the Padre team (and, as follows, the product) is strong and consistent across everything we do. Enthusiastic, unpretentious coffee lovers are the foundation of our company. We believe in quality produce, sustainability, and in having strong relationships with the people we work with, which is why we take the time to make sure that even the tea, milk and chocolate that we use are premium local products made by thoughtful and engaged individuals.

We’re proud to supply our coffee to friends and like-minded people, people it’s a joy to work with. Of course, it’s more than just coffee we provide – years in the industry have taught us that it’s the tools, training, guidance and support we offer that make sure the Padre bean lives up to its name, wherever you might find it.
