Yirgacheffe. The gateway bean for the modern 3rd wave coffee nerd. If you are interested in taking the first step into “serious coffee” then this is a good starting place. Yirgacheffe comes from the original motherland of arabica beans, Ethiopia. Here in its homeland coffee expresses a very unique flavour profile of wild flowers, red berries, fresh citrus and tea. It produces a cup that is very fresh, clean, and completely bewildering to those who have been weened on Starbucks and other heavily roasted coffees. It’s a flavour profile that takes some getting used to.

The flowery, citrus tastes of Yirgacheffe are very delicate so a Light roast yields the best flavours. Medium-Dark to Dark roasts will burn off many of these unique qualities so if you prefer your coffee nutty and chocolatey you would be better off picking another place of origin.

This is the most popular and recommended roast for Yirgacheffe. This roast level keeps the light, delicate notes of Yirgacheffe at the fore-front. Your coffee will have more nuanced/tea-like flavours, fruity and citric tasting. (For those who know coffee lingo, this is your light to city roast)

Our Yirgacheffe is a delicate balancing act. The coffee will have a bit lower acidity, more sweetness but with less of the floral characteristics that make Yirgacheffe special.

We don’t recommend dark roasting Yirgacheffe as you remove all of the characteristics that make it distinct so we do not offer this roast level for this bean.

No pre-Ground beans?

All of our coffees come whole bean. We know it’s inconvenient but once ground, coffee sheds its flavour fast. If you care enough about coffee to get freshly roasted beans, then you owe yourself a good burr grinder.
