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 undertones and a baker’s chocolate finish, this French roast also produces a robust, full-bodied flavor that will 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.
- “I've tried a lot of coffees and Dark Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, brewed in a French Press, with real cream or half/half is AMAZING and is all I can think about. When I get into bed at night, I'm already thinking about my AM cup of coffee. By lunch, I'm thinking about my afternoon cup of coffee. I buy this for our office, and many of us are crazy about it. I rarely write reviews, but I decided everyone needs to know how great this coffee is.”

- “I work with the wounded soldiers at an ARMY BASE in the USA. As the Unit Team Leader, My Patients, Command Staff, Cadre and Professional Staff wait for me to get in at 0630 to make this wonderful coffee. They have all refused the ARMY coffee in favor of the Dark Ethiopian Yirgacheffe. Coffee pot goes 24/7. Our mantra: "SERVE WITH HONOR, IT'S AN HONOR TO SERVE." THEN WE RAISE OUR COFFEE MUGS AS A SALUTE. (This is a salute free zone, otherwise) Thank you Coffee Bean Direct. Charles A. (Lt Col. Ret; LCSW/R)”
