Okari Dark


Dark, secretive, a rich roast of sun-dried beans with an unusually smooth finish. Single Origin.


Okari Dark is a single origin sustainably grown Arabica bean from the Harar district of Ethiopia.

Dark, secretive, a rich roast of sun-dried beans with an unusually smooth finish, Okari Dark carries its body and flavour well into a deeper roast. 'Pull your hat down tight, mate, and take a deep seat 'cause she's a high kicker.'

    This is a fantastic coffee. I’ve bought it for 7 years now. I first bought it for my cafe and it earned me a “best espresso in the village” award from lonely planet. It’s that good! I no longer have the cafe but I own a very good machine at home and I’m lucky enough to enjoy these beans every day.the service is fantastic as well. Great people to deal with. I want to give 5 stars but can only select 4 for some reason

    I love a great black black coffee. And parcial to a splash of cream but if you can see through it it’s not strong enough šŸ™‚

    I brew in a pottery pot then sive. This is my favourite flavor capture šŸ™‚
