Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Coffee

Product Details

Floral notes and mild lemon acidity...

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. 

 

The Great Taste Awards have been described as the Oscars of the food world—so you can imagine we were pretty chuffed when our Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Coffee won a gold star at this year’s awards. The judges praised its “gentle citrus” and “floral notes”.

Origin

Ethiopia

Legend has it that the secret of the Arabica coffee bean was discovered by an Ethiopian goatherd back in 850AD. Noticing his goats seemed rather more frisky than usual, he tracked the cause to the small wild ‘cherries’ they’d been munching… Since then, coffee has been a central part of Ethiopian culture, not least in the elaborate ceremonies where the beans are roasted in huge metal pans over an open fire. Taste profiles can range from fragrant, delicate coffees with notes of citrus and bergamot, through to sweeter coffees with tones of candied and tropical fruit.

From £3.50 - £28.00
