Fairtrade Organic Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Coffee

This is a limited release double-certified FAIRTRADE and Organic Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Natural - a rare offering with amazing floral aromatics.

Ethiopia is regarded as the spiritual birthplace of coffee and there's no doubt the diverse, complex array of coffees from different areas of Ethiopia are capable of covering the full spectrum of coffee characteristics.

Natural processed Ethiopian coffees are sun-dried and exhibit powerful, floral aromas in both whole bean and ground - you can smell it literally everywhere once you pop the bag.

The appearance of natural processed Ethiopians is diverse, with mottled colours from light through to dark, odd shapes and sizes with the coffees certainly not eligible for winning a beauty contest, but putting aside looks, the rubber well and truly hits the road when grinding this coffee - incredible aromatics.

Yirgacheffe is a small region well known for producing some of the best quality coffee lots from Ethiopia - Yirgacheffe is often called the King of Coffees by world-class coffee experts.

They also happen to be the most expensive from Ethiopia commanding a high market premium as demand exceeds supply - everyone wants to showcase Yirgacheffe coffees, it's been that way for a long time and more recently the only coffee to take this crown as a "show pony" has been explosion in Geisha's, but it's important to put this into context, Geisha's command anywhere from 3 to 10 times pricing of Yirgacheffe's.

Yirgacheffe coffees have long been a 1st choice option for competitors in coffee events, hence they have a well earned history of winning most of the medals.

August's feature coffee is a fruity, powerfully aromatic, complex coffee that is FAIRTRADE and Organic certified grown in the Gedeo of Southern Ethiopia at a staggering 2,000+ metres above sea levels.

What we appreciated about this coffee first and foremost were the financially sustainable and social benefits for farmers from the FAIRTRADE market system.

The coffee was farmed using traditional practices with bananas being inter-planted among the coffee trees to provide shade and food sources for the farming communities.

The coffee trees are cultivated by hand with no chemical pesticides, fertilizers or herbicides.

All orders by default will be roasted as per our standard for espresso, however, for those of you wanting to try a filter brew light roasted coffee, we are able to accept special requests for a filter roast (please enter this in delivery instructions), however, please be aware there may be a 1 - 2 day delay with processing filter roast orders if we receive a high volume of special requests.

IMPORTANT NOTE -

Whole bean, 1kg packs only.

No ground packs (the aromas from this coffee need to be fully enjoyed at the time of grinding) and sorry, no 500g packs.

(YFTO1KG)

A superb coffee with amazing aromatics.

Sweet orange and cherry note with a wonderful creamy body.

Ethiopia is the real African powerhouse when it comes to coffee.
