The Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Fair Trade Organic Coffee is vibrant and intensely aromatic, with fruity and subtle earthy flavours. This is a lively 100% Arabica coffee for those who can appreciate a complex, flavourful cup.
Ethiopia is perhaps best known as a poor country, but it actually produces some of the most unique, sought-after crops in the world. Agriculture makes up 41% of its GDP with coffee making up the largest portion at 28%, handily beating out any other country in Africa.
The elevation of Ethiopia qualifies the Yirgacheffe as Strictly High Grown (SHG) / Strictly Hard Bean (SHB). These higher elevations means that the coffees take longer to grow, delivering more nutrients to the coffee bean and allowing it to develop more flavour.
