Samra Blend Vol. 1
Whole Bean Coffee Blends
Created with Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye and his mother, Samra, this blend is a glimpse into their lives. Through their taste and guidance, we created a flavor profile that resembles the coffee used in a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony (Buna Tetu) that they performed regularly as a family. Notes of juicy raspberry and citrus meld with rich caramel and a floral aroma to whisk you away to an Ethiopia that lives in Samra’s memory and was passed down to Abel.
Taste their creation and share in a special piece of Abel’s childhood.
Typically ships in 1 to 3 business days.

The Art of Blending
Blending is where our artistry takes shape. With the world’s best coffee as our medium and the cup as our canvas, we follow inspiration. For this blend, we chose two Ethiopian coffees from METAD—one washed, one natural processed. We explored and experimented with roasting until the basic elements came together to create something beyond coffee—a feeling, a memory, an experience, a taste of home.
Honoring Ethiopian Heritage
Join us, alongside Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye and his XO record label, in celebrating Ethiopia’s heritage of coffee excellence with our brand and product line, Samra Origins. Discover the best Ethiopian coffees, the country’s history and customs, and the people shaping the future of the trade.
In honor of Samra Origins, Blue Bottle Coffee will donate to the XO Humanitarian Fund, administered by World Food Program USA, to support lifesaving emergency operations in areas around the world experiencing food insecurity, with a special focus on Ethiopia.
Serge Attukwei Clottey
Serge Attukwei Clottey and his multidisciplinary practice were brought to us by Abel, a long-time admirer. Clottey uses found materials to create zero-waste art pieces. Here he depicts a stoic mother and son in traditional Ethiopian clothing. His work for Samra Origins is a representation of the country’s storied past, its bright future, and the people who hold Ethiopia in their hands.
