Description

This Ethiopian Yirgacheffe has a pungent, floral aroma and a complex, earthy flavor with a hint of blueberry. Its fruity spiciness has a “wine-like” flavor with a light to medium body.  It has a high acidity, due to the beans being cultivated at such a high elevation (5,800-6,600ft) and being wet-processed.  Wet processing means that as soon as the beans are harvested, and still moist, the coffee cherry is washed off to remove the skin and pulp of the fruit.  Then, the beans are soaked in water fermentation tanks for 24-72 hours, then dried.  Wet processing results in higher acidity than dry processed methods, which gives Yirgacheffe that “clean” taste.  Yirgacheffe is a micro-region within the much larger region of Sidama (or Sidomo) in southern Ethiopia. It is widely considered the birthplace of coffee.
