We are so happy to be roasting Yirgacheffe in the store this week! Ethiopian Yirgacheffe is available by the cup or the bag today. What is Ethiopian Yirgacheffe? Glad you asked.
Ethiopia is widely considered to be the birthplace of coffee. Yirgacheffe is considered to be the best Ethiopians available.
Yirgacheffe (also spelled Yirgachefe, Yergacheffe, or Yerga Chefe) is a micro-region within the much larger region of Sidama (or Sidomo) in southern Ethiopia.
Ethiopian Yirgacheffe has a light to medium body (although they can be full body as well). As is typical with other coffees from this region, it has a distinctively fruity flavor profile and a bright, floral aroma thanks to wet-processed beans cultivated at a high elevation (between 5,800 to 6,600 ft).
Yirgacheffe is a great coffee to enjoy through a french press. Ask for one when you stop in and we'd love to hear your thoughts. If you're brewing at home make sure to use fresh roasted beans, and grind just before brewing
