Ethiopian Coffee Yirgacheffe

(2 customer reviews)

This coffee has a smooth, light body with citrus and floral tasting notes and a bright lemon finish.

Perfect as a pour over, we suggest brewing this with a V60. However, it can be brewed however you want as it is a flexible coffee!

Taste Profile: Balanced, Floral, Black Tea, Lemon

This beautiful Ethiopian coffee has a lot to offer! Not only is it certified organic with traceability directly to the farm, but it also tastes great. It is balanced, light, and soft with black tea, lemon, lime, grape, orange and floral flavours. One of our current favourites!

It is from a western region of Ethiopia not originally well-known for high-quality coffee. It comes from a single farm – Tega & Tula Specialty Coffee Farm – established in the year 2000 by Ahadu Woubhset. Tega & Tula are actually two adjacent farms, named after the two nearby villages of Tega and Tula, found in the woreda (or district) of Gibo, in Kaffa, Ethiopia.

The farm is certified organic and produces both washed and natural coffees, and it not only has a wonderful flavour profile but also full traceability down to the producer— right down to the the “block,” or subplot.

This particular block is called Gera, and is a 12.46-hectare subplot located in the Tega farm. This block is used for evaluating and determining best practices, and for experimentations and trials. It has the coffee plants with the largest seeds, shaded by avocado. It’s a favorite area for pigs and monkeys to visit. It was planted and/or renovated in 2000, and has 75227 and 744 varieties. The type known as 75227 was discovered in Gera in 1975 when researchers were looking for naturally Coffee Berry Disease–resistant plants. Its distribution started in 1981, and it grows best between 1,500–2,000 meters. Another CBD-resistant variety, 744 was released in 1979, and has been one of the most commonly distributed cultivars since its release.

    A light, fragrant and very pleasurable coffee! I enjoyed the lightness of this, compared to other roasts with a fuller, stronger body. I could certainly smell the citruses, lemon on the nose. The flavour is delicate and clean, with a nice finish.

    I bought this on recommendation to try with my new V60 and I’m really impressed. It’s a contrast to the usual chocolatey coffees I tend to go for. It’s fresh and light and floral and very refreshing. The guys were very helpful in helping me chose something different and the delivery was really quick. Highly recommended!
