Ethiopian Yirgacheffe

Ethiopian Yirgacheffe


Ethiopia is widely regarded as the birthplace of coffee, and Yirgacheffe—in the bottom half of the country, in the Gedeo Zone of the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples’ Region (SNNPR)—is arguably its most famous growing region.  As James Hoffmans explains in The World Atlas of Coffee: “So many of the great washed coffees from Yirgacheffe are explosively aromatic, full of citrus and floral notes and have a light and elegant body, so this is undeniably one of the greatest and most interesting regions for growing coffee.” The washed Yirgacheffe is one of the best highland-grown coffees, and is ranked across the world. It is grown at an altitude of 1700-2200 meters. Many people are attracted to its delicate, floral and tea characteristics.
