Slingshot Coffee is always brewed using fresh-crop, in-season, single origin beans. When we think about coffee as an agricultural product — it is the seed of a fruit, after all — we can identify better with seasonality. We are committed to only using coffees that are fresh, which will in turn highlight the beautiful story that each has to tell — through its flavor, variety, origin and more.
To capture the beauty of that seasonality, the origin of the coffees we use will change throughout the year. Each new seasonal selection will bring with it a new origin, new flavors and a new experience. And, of course, our coffees are always 100% Certified Organic, Direct Trade Certified and Kosher Certified.

Slingshot Coffee Co.’s summer seasonal is a washed coffee from a cooperative in Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia, called Idido. Ethiopia’s coffee trees have cross-pollinated an unknown number of times, creating more genetic coffee diversity than all other producing countries combined. Ethiopia also has the longest-standing traditions of coffee culture and cultivation in the world. No other country celebrates coffee with such high regard. The reverence of the daily coffee ceremony is a cultural treasure and an incredibly important part of the fabric of Ethiopian social, familial, and even business life.
Like all seasonal selections for Slingshot’s Cold Brew, this coffee is certified organic and direct trade.
