ETHIOPIA YIRGACHEFFE GRADE 1 – Medium Roast
Gedeo Zone – Idido
Known for its sweet flavor and aroma with a light to medium body. Ethiopia Yirgacheffe is fruity and fragrant, and is frequently reviewed and rated as the highest quality Arabica coffee in the world.
Yirgacheffe coffee is a wet processing (washed) 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 flavours.
A fine Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee displays a bright acidity along with intense, clean tastes and a complexity of floral notes in the aroma, sometimes with a hint of toasted coconut. Cupping notes frequently mention the aftertaste being vibrant, and the coffee may exhibit undertones of berry or wine.
A Medium Roast is best used for unroasted Yirgacheffe green coffee beans to allow its delicate qualities to shine and enhance the coffee’s bright acidity.
