Coming from West Arsi, Ethiopia, this coffee comes from a collection of 742 smallholders at an elevation of 1900 – 2100 meters. This area is known for its dense and shaded forestry and abundant rainfall – making it an ideal location for growing coffee.

We were impressed at our weekly cuppings with Riripa’s easy drinking nature and wide variety of tasting notes. Floral, Peach, Bergamot, and Malt stood out as the main flavors.

MORE COFFEES FROM THIS ROASTER

Nowhere is that more true than inside Denver's Novo Coffee. These coffees are purchased primarily through long term relationships with farmers who share in Novo’s pursuit of the highest quality coffees along with strong commitments to social, environmental, and economic sustainability...

Roasting is done in small batches and profiled in a way to ensure that the inherent flavors in each coffee are brought to the forefront, as are their differences based on origin, terroir, processing method, variety, and other factors.

Our coffee buyers have demonstrated a special ability to discover truly wonderful and distinctive coffees. We roast our coffee and present it to the consumer in such a way that the differences and subtleties between roasts are as apparent as the nuances found in wine. These diverse flavors lead to a deeper discovery of coffee origins, the people who grow and harvest the cherries, the cultures that exist where the coffees are cultivated, It is our aim to promote the world of specialty roasted coffee through the meticulous selection,

We like to think of the world of coffee not as a static range of cultivated land that lies between Cancer and Capricorn, but instead as a botanically differentiated region whose crop originated in Ethiopia over a thousand years ago. Since then, coffee has moved to the middle east, to India and Indonesia, then to the New World, and finally, back to Africa and Kenya as a domesticated, genetically modified product. This journey is our journey as coffee specialists, a journey back to coffee’s birthplace.

As our name suggests, Novo Coffee was created with a goal of bringing new life to the coffee industry. It is our aim to promote the world of specialty roasted coffee through the meticulous selection, roasting, brewing, and presentation of what we feel are some of the most distinctive and flavorful coffees available in today's marketplace.

We have a lofty goal: we want to reintroduce you to coffee. For starters, coffee didn’t originate in a European cafe amidst writers, lovesick poets, and starving artists. It comes from a rich tradition built in Ethiopia, where coffee is called Bunna, pronounced “BOON-NUH” in their native language of Amharic.

They say there is a little bit of science in every art and a little bit of art in every science. and the economic relationships that are formed with each and every purchase of roasted specialty coffee. We strive to keep a foot in the past by connecting to origin, and supporting the communities that start our beans on their path to your cup. But we also keep an eye to the future, developing roasting and brewing techniques that challenge convention and dramatically improve your coffee experience.
