Oak Lawn's Local Coffee Roasters
Now Available for Delivery!
Menkeshkesh? Yes! This Tigrinya word is the very reason we enjoy coffee today! In Ethiopia, the “birth place of coffee”, the word “Menkeshkesh” holds a dual meaning. Literally translated to "the shaker", the name also refers to the pan and person (usually a woman) who masterfully roasts coffee beans for her guests on an open fire. This in essence is my mission, to provide expertly roasted, quality coffee that is ethically sourced, with a particular focus on single origin farms.
Menkeshkesh coffee provides a complex blend of different flavors, which together produce a range of sensory experiences.

I drink my coffee black. If I can't drink the coffee black then it isn't good coffee. This coffee was oh so good black. Smooth and easy to drink. Good flavor too!
All I can say is that it's a Great Cup of Coffee, and the way I like to start my day...with a great cup of Coffee!
I work for a very well known coffee company. In the past 7 years that I have been employed with this establishment, I have never tasted a freshly brewed cup of coffee as good as Menkeshkesh. The way that they roast, I can taste every note in the coffee. The smell is delightful and the rich taste of the bean makes me want more. We need more authentic roasters that teach us the basics of coffee and what it's supposed to taste like.
