Ethiopia, the birthplace of coffee, has more than 1.2 million coffee growers and approximately 15 million households dependent on coffee for their livelihoods. Coffee accounts for more than half of Ethiopias export earnings. OCFCU (Oromia Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union) is the largest Fair Trade coffee producer in Ethiopia. Oromia was founded in 1999 when 23,691 members of 35 small Ethiopian cooperatives came together with the goal of exporting their coffee directly to the specialty market. Oromias Highland Coffees are grown by indigenous farmers of the southwestern rainforest of Ethiopia. Oromia sells its coffee to Fair Trade markets in the United States and Europe.

About Cafe Femenino The story of Cafe Femenino began in 2004 when women farmers from northern Peru began talking with their cooperative leaders about their desire to separate their coffee from the mens. These female members of Cecanor felt they put more care into their production, creating a superior product and wanted to know if there might be a market for womens coffee. Cecanor, having already established a partnership with Organic Products Trading Co. over the previous 10 years, collaborated with us to see how we might organize a womens only coffee for the international marketplace. Together we developed a full social program with the goal to empower female farmers using the production and sale of their own product as the vehicle to create social change. Today the Cafe Femenino Program continues to have a huge impact in the daily lives of women around the world and creates greater gender equality in families, cooperatives, and communities.

Whole Bean Grind Chart
If you are purchasing a bag of whole bean coffee on our website, you can select your grind method of choice (at no extra charge!) from the dropdown and we will grind and ship it to you. We grind the beans freshly for you at our warehouse in ECS Coffee Burlington right before your order is shipped, and reseal the package to maintain optimal freshness in transit.
If you are visiting us in store, you can also request for your beans to be ground in store before you take them home.
We use a commercial BUNN Burr Grinder to grind the beans.
Please note: Freshly ground coffee is non-refundable and not returnable. To ensure that you receive a ground coffee that is consistent with your brew method of choice, refer to our Grind Chart below!
|For use with espresso machines. Fine coffee grinds will have the size and feel of sand.|
Choose a medium fine grind if you are brewing with a Moka Pot, stovetop espresso brewers or an Aeropress.
Cone Filter - We use two medium settings depending on your brewer. The Cone Filter medium setting is a bit finer, and is suitable for pour-over drip brewers (cone style) such as Hario, Melitta, Clever. It is also used for cone style automatic brewers.
Flat Bottom Filter - This setting is suitable for coffee machines with a flat bottom basket filter, such as commercial automatic drip machines. It is also an appropriate setting for if you have a refillable coffee capsule for use in Keurig® machines. Medium coffee grinds will be around the same size as sea salt.
If you are brewing with a percolator, the grind setting is a bit coarser than your standard medium grind, to minimize grinds making it through the filter. We use a percolator-specific setting on our grinder.
Vaccuum brewers, Chemex.
For french press, cold brew coffee. A coarse grind is very chunky in look, like crushed peppercorns.
Remember that this coffee grind chart is a guideline! If you use a coffee brewing method that is not listed here, feel free to reach out and we will let you know which grind is the best for your brewer.
