Boutique Roasters Moving Away from Ethiopian Beans (with video)

Several U.S. specialty roasters are moving away from buying Ethiopian beans as the exact sources of those beans become harder to trace, according to a new video put together by Bloomberg News.

While the Ethiopian Commodities Exchange, established in 2008, has helped the country as a whole, it has also made it largely impossible to know where most of the nation’s beans are grown. Coffee roasters within the video say that while the quality of Ethiopian beans tends to remain high, the nation’s trade rules may be negatively affecting sales to people looking for single-source coffees.
