Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Natural
Cupping Notes: Berries. Floral. Bakers chocolate.
Details: The Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperatives Union (YCFCU) located in southern Ethiopia was founded in 2002. It has grown to represent 23 member cooperatives which include more than 300,000 families. In this region over 62,000 hectares are dedicated to coffee, grown alongside bananas and maize. Forest canopy, organic fertilizers, and a temperate climate produce a very high quality bean.
The water conserving "Natural Process" method allows the flavor laden coffee cherry to remain on the seed for days, saturating the bean with an intense berry flavor. We carefully adjust our roasting to enhance the distinctive qualities of the Yirgacheffe Natural coffee.
