Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Coffee Beans
This premier organic coffee is our second from the beautiful land of Ethiopia. Hailing from the Yirgacheffe region, these beans are sourced from the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union’s Konga Cooperative, which represents 2400 small holder farmers throughout the area. We love this product because we think the beans display the farmers’ hard work, dedication, and impeccable attention to detail in processing.
About Our Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Coffee
Our Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee beans are a medley of Arabica beans and varietal heirlooms chosen from the forest and transplanted to small gardens. These heirloom flavors add a new layer of depth and complexity to the final flavor profile, but they also add a unique challenge for farmers who are responsible for hand-sorting unripe or overripe cherries to ensure that only the finest beans make it into the mix. To top that off, the beans are grown at about 1900 - 2300 meters above sea level.
When the beans are harvested, coffee is pulped with a 5-disc pulper and wet-fermented for 24 to 36 hours. After being sorted based on density, the fermented coffee beans are washed in clean water before being laid out to dry for 1 to 2 weeks on cloth drying beds. Farm workers cover the coffee with plastic at midday and overnight. Once dried, the coffee is screened 14 and up to deliver a taste that is unmatched by pretty much anything else on the market today.
Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Roasting and Flavor Profiles
With all the love and care that goes into harvesting and processing these beans, we do not take for granted our responsibility to roast them at a standard they deserve. The natural profile of the beans lends itself to a lemony, sweet flavor with an aroma that brings to mind fresh cane sugar and citrus. This is a smooth-bodied cup and boasts delicious flavor notes of apricot, sweet lemon, delicate florals, and even a hint of jasmine.
Pro-Tip: Because of this coffee’s natural citrusy sweetness, we recommend pairing it with a specialty chocolate that has a fruity essence.
