In 850 AD, it is said an Ethiopian goat herder discovered the wonders of coffee when his flock grew restless and wouldn’t go to sleep at night. Curious, he discovered that his flock had been eating the cherries of coffee trees. This innovator of caffeinated beverages made his discovery in Yirgacheffe, a region located in south-central Ethiopia. Featuring subtle fruity and chocolaty undertones, this Light roast also preserves a kick strong enough to get anyone ready to face the day. Whether you are writing code or herding goats, you’ll know Yirgacheffe is the discovery of a lifetime.
- “Periodically, we do a series of tests of new-to-us coffees. This was in the latest group. This morning, we brewed the last of it...sad to see it gone...will have to get more. It is a wonderful, smooth, flavorful brew with good aroma and a natural sweetness that is subtle but notable. Good with or without sugar and 1/2n1/2 (easy on the sugar). A great breakfast coffee and that's as far as it got because we emptied the carafe every morning during or just after breakfast. Take no prisoners...no leftovers. One of the very best in my estimation.”
- “This is my favorite coffee!”
- “Just opening the bag and sticking the nose in. It makes a great cup of coffee, better stronger than weak. ”
