Ethiopia is believed to be the birthplace of coffee and has many famous coffee-producing regions but none are quite as famous as Yirgacheffe. The region's coffees are celebrated for their delicate natures including floral aromatics and citric acidity. Long used to soften and balance blends, they are now avidly pursued by coffee lovers the world over as delicious single origin brews.

This particularly Yirgacheffe comes from the celebrated Kochere washing station. Ethiopian coffees that are traceable to this extent (a group of 500 smallhold farmers) are particularly rare and prized and definitely worth savouring!

In the cup, this has all the quintessential Yirgacheffe characteristics including floral aromatics, citrus acidity and fruity sweetness with a lighter body. You may also pick up some subtle hints of tea, as well as white grape and stone fruit flavours specifically. We enjoyed this coffee most in pour-overs and plunger brews, but you're not likely to be disappointed in any brew method.
