Description

The Yirgacheffe sub-region has a great reputation for quality coffee beans. Naturally, our Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee is no exception. Ethiopia, or at least what is present-day Ethiopia, is the birthplace of coffee many hundreds of years ago. That fascinating history is honoured with every sip of this delightful brew.

This is a washed wet-processed and sun-dried coffee with a very clean and fruity taste, more refined than our standard Mocha Coffee. It is light in body and high in acidity, making it an excellent choice for either filter or cafetiere coffee. The choice is ultimately yours but whatever you decide, rest assured knowing that Ethiopian Yirgacheffe is like no other coffee; in fact, we might be bold enough to say that it’s better! We’ll let you decide today with our very special Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, a coffee of guaranteed quality.

What does your morning cup of coffee say about you? With Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, quality is assured. Each region and micro-region of Ethiopia boasts its own unique characteristics in terms of the coffee it produces. Choosing Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee beans is choosing the best of the best.

It is, in fact, situated in the larger Sidamo region of Ethiopia, which is in itself known for the equally delicious Ethiopian Sidamo Coffee. The Ethiopian Coffee Industry, as a whole, employs around 12 million countrymen and women, many of whom grow coffee at elevations of 1,500 and 2,200 metres above sea level. Typically, harvesting begins in November and ends in February across Ethiopia.

The history of Ethiopian coffee is, in many ways, the history of coffee in its entirety. According to legend, coffee was discovered by an Ethiopian goat herder called Kaldi, who lived some time in either the 9th, 10th, or 11th Century, we can’t be certain which, however! It is said that Kaldi observed his goats eating the berries of an unknown plant one day, and in his curiosity, decided to try it for himself. He felt stimulated, uplifted, and energised.

He then decided to take his discovery to the local monastery; however, the monks believed the berries to be the work of the devil, discarding them in a fire. The flames roasted the beans and a wonderful aroma wafted through the room. The monks, realising their mistake, retrieved the beans and placed them in a jug of hot water for preservation. The beans infused with the water to create the brew we all know and love today, or so the story goes!

Whether you choose to believe this tale or not is up to you. But one way or another, Ethiopian coffee inspired humanity and remains one of the most popular beverages in history. Who would have thought a simple cup of coffee could be so important? Obtain all this and more with our Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Coffee today.
