SEED TO SIP:
Ethiopian coffees hold a special place in every coffee lover’s heart. This natural processed Yirgacheffe Aricha Grade 1 is sure to impress with its deep juicy strawberry notes and its rich, creamy texture. Yum!
Perfect with and without milk, the strawberry notes of Yirgacheffe shine through even when preparing your favourite milk-based beverage. The coffee is grown in the Yirgacheffe region of southern Ethiopia, at altitudes of between 2000 to 2200 metres, mainly in small gardens belonging to families who live around the ‘kabele’ (town) of Aricha. Families typically have a farm size ‘garden’ of 0.5 to 2 hectares producing between 1 to 10 bags of green coffee. Most Yirgacheffe ‘garden’ coffees are organic by default.
Once harvested, the Yirgacheffe coffee cherries are sold to the local milling station Alemayehu Urdofa. Here the cherries are sorted by hand before being dried for 4 – 6 weeks on raised sunbeds. The sweet, fruity mucilage of the coffee cherry penetrates the inner beans during this process, creating the very prominent fruitiness and sweetness, which we love in Ethiopian coffees.
We are also offering the Yirgacheffe as filter roast.
