The deliciously floral taste of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Coffee instantly brings to mind the lush rolling hills in South West Ethiopia where the beans are grown. The coffee has a unique silky smooth sweetness that makes it hard to resist.
It is not surprising that such a great coffee should come from so close to the original home of the Arabica coffee bean. Still grown using traditional methods, the coffee beans are wet processed. The result is the distinctly clean floral flavour with complex zesty notes that give this coffee a refinement normally associated with tea. A three star gold winner in the Great Taste Awards 2012, the judges described it as having "Good Yirgacheffe fruit. Great peach flavour".
Ranked as one of the finest coffees in the world, Yirgacheffe is definitely a coffee of distinction. Its alluring sweetness makes it perfect for drinking at any time of the day. Serve it black to fully appreciate the complex nuances of this sophisticated bean.
