Coffee News: Café Desta Will Soon Roast Its Own

Posted By on Tue, Aug 23, 2011 at 12:30 PM

Café Desta, the Ethiopian eatery at 758 S. Stone Ave., will soon be roasting its own coffee.

Telahoun Molla tells us the roaster is already in place and that he hopes to be turning out fair-trade coffee imported from Ethiopia by December. The coffee will be available by the cup and by the bag.

“We’re working to get various coffees from Ethiopia, and trying to make sure it's fair-trade so the farmers are benefitting from this business, too,” Molla said this morning.

Molla said a room adjacent to the restaurant will hold the coffee business and a small café-style seating area.

This will be the second coffee-roasting business in that area. Café Aqui, a microroastery that sells bulk coffee and supplies several local restaurants, is located right down the street at 1317 S. Sixth Ave.
