Description

Our best Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Coffee comes from the Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia. It is one of the most popular types of Gourmet Coffee we stock.

We enable it to reach its full potential with the latest state-of-the-art Neuhaus Neotec fluidised air-bed system, which primarily uses convection heat transfer to medium-roast the beans. We then pack it fresh to order, ensuring quality and consistency.

Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Flavour Profile

Perhaps most essential is to know about Ethiopian Yirgacheffe’s tasting notes. This is a washed, wet-processed and sun-dried Coffee, factors of which contribute to its clean and fruity character.

It bears some resemblance to our Mocha Coffee. When brewed, it has a light body with high acidity, making it an excellent choice for a Filter or Cafetiere Coffee. But where did it all begin?

The Story of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Coffee Beans

Ethiopia in East Africa is the birthplace of Coffee. According to legend, it was here, hundreds of years ago, that a goat herder stumbled upon the beans.

He had observed his flock grazing on an unknown plant, their energy levels boosted, and so he decided to try it for himself. When news spread, people thought it was the work of dark forces. The truth is that it was Caffeine in Coffee.

Today, the Ethiopian Coffee industry employs some 15 million people for various aspects of production. Harvesting takes place at elevations between 1,500 and 2,200 metres above sea level, starting in November and ending in February.

The beans from the country account for around 3% of the global Coffee market - and they are becoming increasingly trendy every year.

Ethiopian Sidamo vs Yirgacheffe

The Yirgacheffe region finds itself within what was once Sidamo Province. In other words, Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Green Coffee Beans are, technically, Sidamo Coffee Beans.

There are nevertheless distinctions between our Yirgacheffe Coffee and Ethiopian Sidamo Coffee. The latter is a full-bodied infusion particularly sought after by those who like a “hearty” cuppa. Yirgacheffe is lighter on the palate.

Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Caffeine Content

It isn’t only goats that feel a sense of elation after gorging on Coffee beans. You will, too, but by how much? The average serving will boast around 100-mg of caffeine - more than enough to get you out of bed first thing in the morning.

Whatever your reason for choosing it, be it flavour, energy or renown, you’ve chosen exceptionally well with The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company.

  9. With the objective of trying as many coffee choices as possible this is my first Ethiopian one. Have to say I was a bit disappointed and it didn't suit me. I am something of a novice with 'real' coffee having had a proper coffee machine for about 2 years, but to me the coffee was just a bit too bitter, although nicely strong. However there are many more to try!
