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.
- “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. ”
I generally do a coarse grind with a press and a slightly longer brew time for this bean than usual, but the resulting cup is never acidic, always has a nice fresh taste, and stays rich and vibrant right down to the end of the cup. The flavor is subtle, but earthy; not in your face or overwhelming like some coffees.
Definitely a winner in my book.”
“This is one of the best, if not THE best, non-flavored coffees I've had. Period.
