About the bean

Ethiopia, the legendary home of the coffee plant and Africa's largest exporter, grows remarkably varied and distinctive beans. One of the very finest comes from the Yirgacheffe region - once the only coffee allowed in the palaces of Ethiopian kings. Today, this bean, which grows in high elevations under a soft canopy of native shade trees, is developing an almost cult-like following among bean aficionados. Widely recognized as one of the world's most exquisite coffees, Yirgacheffe's fragrant and flowery citrus notes set it apart from any other bean you will encounter. Many compare its rich flavour to that of burgundy wine.

Roasting recommendation: To bring out this Yirgacheffe's subtleties, opt for a medium roast. Adds nuance when blended with other coffees. Roasted dark, it becomes sharply pungent but very thin, bereft of all its flowery and fruity notes.
