Why 'Champion's Choice'?

Throughout his long international career Haile was a great champion. Perhaps his greatest win came in Sydney when he won his second Olympic 10,000m gold medal, defeating Kenya’s Paul Tergat in the final stride of the race. Haile went into that race with big injury concerns having nursed an Achilles tendon injury in the run-up to the Games. When on the final lap his great Kenyan rival unleashed a ferocious final kick Haile gave chase and just managed to edge past Tergat in the race’s dying moments because, as one commentator famously put it, “Haile simply didn’t know how to lose.”

This coffee comes from Haile’s farm in south-western Ethiopia and brings you flavour notes of peach, apricot and caramel, with a lemon twist on the finish.

After picking and sorting the cherries, the coffee is processed with the mucilage (or second layer of flesh) left on the bean during the drying process and this produces a slightly sweeter taste. This ‘honey’ coffee has been extremely popular with international traders and we are excited to offer this as one of our signature single-origin coffees.

This coffee works well for espresso, filter and cafetière coffee.

Giving back

Pace Coffee has partnered with Footwork, an international initiative to eliminate podoconiosis (or ‘podo’), a non-infectious geochemical disease arising in barefoot subsistence farmers whose feet are in long-term contact with irritant red clay soil of volcanic origins.

£1 of every pack sold of Champion’s Choice and the Podium Bundle will be donated to Footwork. These funds will be used to support the national podoconiosis elimination programme in Ethiopia, and specifically to train health workers and to procure treatment supplies.
