Yirgacheffe coffee is a washed (wet processed) coffee grown at elevations from 1,700 to 2,200 meters above sea level, and is the considered the best high grown coffee in southern Ethiopia, an exotic coffee region known for fine coffees. These elevations qualify Yirgacheffes as Strictly High Grown (SHG) / Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) coffees, where coffees grow slowly due to the altitude, allowing additional time for the tree to deliver nutrients to the coffee and develop the best flavors.
Our Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee displays a bright acidity along with intense, clean tastes and a complexity of floral notes. In the best Ethiopian coffees, one can observe an aroma of blueberries or blackberries. Ethiopian coffee is often used in espresso blends to capture the fine aromatics in the crema.
Yirgacheffe makes for a great afternoon treat. Some of our customers say it's almost tea-like in it's fruitiness, and we're inclined to agree.
