This coffee brews up a very distinctive cup: dry, wine-like notes with a deep, fruity aroma and flavor and a long aftertaste with lingering richness and complexity. Coffee is as important to Ethiopians as it is to Americans, perhaps more so. Ethiopia holds a credible claim to being the birthplace of coffee and highland-grown coffee is its biggest export. Ethiopian Harrar is a blend of the finest unwashed coffees from select Ethiopian farms. This coffee possesses a medium body, earthy, yet has a slightly fruity flavor, light acidity and a wonderful smoothness of cup.
Kaffe Magnum Opus really started as an aroma in 1955 or so, in an A and P store in East Rockaway, Long Island. Bob Johnson, the person who started Kaffe Magnum Opus was then only 10, but had the enviable task of grinding the coffee for his parents' home use. "I always remember the aroma", says Bob. "That aroma hit me again in the Galleria Mall in Philadelphia in 1989 and I decided there and then to change my life completely." After 23 years in finance, Bob followed the aroma into the coffee business and started Kaffe Magnum Opus in 1991, as a store - Coffee Time - in, Vineland, New Jersey. The cafe building became the Headquarters and roasting plant for Kaffe Magnum Opus in 1996 when Kaffe Magnum Opus emerged. Freshness is king in the coffee business and Kaffe Magnum Opus only roasts to order. Even in its new facility with larger roasting equipment, the focus is on roasting batches. This insures freshness in every delicious, aromatic cup.
