According to legend, Ethiopia is coffee’s country of origin. Above all, however, for many coffee lovers Ethiopian coffees are the first impressive experiences with speciality coffees. Naturally processed Yirgacheffe coffees are sweet and have distinctive berry-floral notes that are far removed from the coffees we are used to in everyday life. Yirgacheffes are the most spectacular and popular coffees for many coffee lovers.
This coffee is grown by small farmers in the Aricha region at an altitude of 1,800 - 2,400 metres above sea level. The coffee is grown as garden coffee by several family farms and hand-picked. This coffee is naturally processed and sun-dried on raised beds (African beds), which strongly emphasises the berry notes - in this coffee especially the strawberry notes.
The coffee is certified organic and sourced from fair trade direct from algrano.
