Our Ethiopian Queen
When we launched Bearings, we challenged ourselves to introduce you to coffee via art and interesting stories. Connecting you to a constellation of the night sky is a story we'd like to tell.
While visiting Bryce Canyon's Dark Sky Place, a Park Ranger showed us Cassiopeia's constellation during a night sky tour. The Ranger described her as the 'Ethiopian Queen who lives in the stars.' After learning about her distinctive 'W' star pattern, we thought Cassiopeia might be a cool name for an Ethiopian coffee.
It's said that Cassiopeia was boastful about beauty. Cheers to that and do take some time later tonight to look up at the sky and enjoy the experience. It's a beautiful feeling and let us know if you find our Queen.
Ireland's Warrior Queen
Queen Maeve was our first coffee and is our signature product. She was first launched as a blend of Colombia, Sumatra and Ethiopia. To celebrate our first anniversary in March 2018, she returned as a limited edition single origin.
Traditionally, the 'Irish Coffee' has been associated with booze, yet the drink itself has far more coffee in it. We concentrated on the coffee and named if after an Irish cultural icon named Maeve, Ireland's warrior Queen.
Enjoy reading about Maeve and embrace Ireland's cultural heritage. To reimagine what being Irish means is good for you.
