About the bean
This coffee entry, a first time for us, is the top of the tops from Cuba and a notch even above Cuba's ultra-prized Extra Turquino coffee. These large beans were grown and cultivated in rich soils without the use of any chemical products. Hand picked, fully washed and sun-dried.
What you can expect
To revel in this cup's subtleties: an aromatic and rich flavour, good body with earthy chocolate notes and a smooth, extra-long aftertaste. A great espresso or French press/filtered coffee.
Roasting recommendation: Medium-dark. (Home roasters): This is not a coffee with a high moisture content so there is no need to "slow roast". Refer to our roasting guide here.

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 -- 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 note sets it apart from any other bean you will encounter. Many compare its rich flavor to that of burgundy wines.
To best bring out Yirgacheffe's subtleties, roast it medium. Consider blending it to add nuance to other coffees. A few like it roasted dark: Yirgacheffe then becomes sharply pungent but very thin, bereft of all its flowery and fruity notes.
