In collaboration with Populus Coffee in Berlin, Germany we're bringing you the Dark Alliance Specialty Coffee by Evil Greed. Artwork by Death By Coffee who designed the label with typography added by Branca Studio.
Tabe Burka is a washing station founded in 2008 by a Guji-native Tadesse Edema; a pioneer among producers in Uraga. Grown in a big, highly coffee-oriented family with 29 brothers all of whom work with coffee.
Tabe Burka station collects its coffee from 300 surrounding smallholders, that form five farmer groups. Each farmer owns approximately 3 hectares of land. Tadesse pays the farmers groups in advance when harvest begins. This gives the smallholders an incentive to concentrate on harvesting quality.
Our sourcing partner for Ethiopia, Belco Coffee, runs a project called Forest Coffee led by Delphine Ayerbe and Jacques Chambrillon. The project focuses on coffees grown in high-altitude, primary forest habitats that are extremely rare and fragile ecosystems. Farmers who live next to their indigenous arabica trees are under economic pressure and therefore, so are the forests they cultivate in. Belco collaborates with farmers by studying farm ecosystems, advising on processing and farming methods, and spreading knowledge of forest-grown coffee. -

IMPORTANT INFORMATION - VINYL ORDERS
Please note that we do our best to protect vinyl records ideally for shipping, using our custom made mailers and additional cardboard squares. However, we can not guarantee that no damage on the way occurs. Ordering is at one's own risk. Vinyl might be delivered unsealed as we have to open copies to check vinyl colours, if not sufficiently labeled by the distributor / label.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION - PRE-ORDERS
Pre-order means that your item will not ship before it's release date and so will all other items on your order. We do not split up orders, everything will be shipped all at once together in one package.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION - PRODUCT IMAGES
Please note that most of the images in our store are not actual photos but mock ups. These mock ups are digital representations of what we expect the final product to look like - however they do not represent the final product. Final vinyl pressings, prints, etc. may look slightly different.
