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.

I don't like a strong coffee and this is so mellow, yet the taste of the coffee come through. I love ir.

Probably not to everyones taste which makes it all the more perfect for me. A unique and elegant taste with an earthy smell. Really nice if you have a tasteful palette.

We love this coffee - we have a machine that grinds the beans and then makes the coffee, so it is always fresh and smooth. However, I used the next day service for the first time (there was an offer running) - DON'T! Stick to normal post; UK Mail are a nightmare of incompetence and my next day delivery took 6 days!

This coffee should NEVER be prepared using an espresso machine (see review 3), but instead with e.g. a stove-top coffee maker, a cafetiere, or ordinary coffee maker. Only then can the true taste be discovered.

Like the title says, I found this coffee smooth, sweet and earthy. Brewed for 4 minutes using a coffee ratio of 60g/1 litre it came out lovely - medium bodied, not in the least bitter with a subtle smokey/sweet earthiness not unlike beetroot. Great everyday coffee, very nice in the evening after work!
