In Ethiopia, coffee (known as ‘bunna’) plays an integral role in social and cultural life, not least in the elaborate ceremonies where the beans are roasted in huge metal pans over an open fire. 

Grown close to the home of the first coffee bean, the coffee grown around the tiny town of Yirgacheffe in Southern Ethiopia has an extraordinarily distinctive flavour profile, characterised by aromatic floral notes and mild lemon acidity. Wet-processed according to traditional methods, this light-bodied coffee has a silky smooth sweetness, winning it three gold stars in the 2012 Great Taste Awards. In the words of the judges? ‘Good Yirgacheffe fruit. Great peach flavour.’ We couldn’t agree more. 

Ingredients

Pure arabica beans from the south west of Ethiopia. Packed in an environment where nuts are handled.

Brew a Perfect Cup

Follow the manufacturer's equipment instructions Always use fresh water. Use water just off the boil so you don't scald the coffee. Do not re-heat brewed coffee.

Just attempted to make a lungo, then an espresso with this after buying a selection of different beans last weekend. Changed the grind & strength a few times & couldn't get it tasting even remotely coffee like. Tasted like i'd imagine the soil to taste after a cat has done it's business. Have put the rest of the beans in the bin. AWFUL
