This is our fourth year sourcing coffee from Guji Uraga through Red Fox Coffee Merchants, and our first year buying Kedir Jebril. We wrote a forward contract to buy 10 bags from Mr. Jebril, split between two lots. Our friend Joel Edwards at Red Fox Coffee Merchants sent us a pre-ship sample of this lot to fill part of that contract, which we scored 90 points. We purchased 5 60kg bags for $4.75/lb EXW, on a day when the Coffee Commodity price was $1.23/lb.
