For a light roast with an exotic and berry taste. Ethiopian Yirgacheffe is the coffee for you!
Ethiopian Yirgacheffe (also spelled Yirgachefe, Yergacheffe, or Yerga Chefe) coffee is one of the worlds most sought after coffees. Since Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee and it has embedded history as the first coffee growing region, it's no wonder these beans are incredibly popular. This light to medium roast offers a softly fragrant aroma, these coffee beans have a subtle floral scent and a satisfyingly intensified finish, with a hint of toasted coconut, that would leave any coffee drinker's palate wanting more.
These Ethiopian beans are hand-picked, which makes the quality rank high among other coffees. Processed through the wet-processing method, giving it an intense spicy, herb flavor with a dry citrus taste. As soon as the beans are harvested, and still moist, the coffee cherry is washed off to remove the skin. Ethiopian Yirgacheffe's beans are fermented for over 72 hours after having their fruit and pulp removed by the use of natural enzymes. This process allows the Ethiopian Yirgacheffe to absorb the sugars in the coffee fruit, creating a stronger full-body flavor in comparison to the dry-method of processing coffee.
Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee beans are known for having a warm zing, which makes this coffee bean distinctive enough to rank as one of the finest. However, what makes this African coffee bean stand out is its resonant finish – a highly-flavored mix that does not overpower with an earthy taste. If you are looking for a taste of coffee history, the Ethiopian Yirgacheffe beans have everything your palate could ask for!
Whatever the brew method, use fresh-roasted and fresh-ground Yirgacheffe to experience the distinct flavors and aromatics of Yirgacheffe.
