Each single origin coffee we purchase is carefully chosen for its character, fragrance, sweetness and body, to showcase the coffees from that farm.  We roast these single origin coffees a little lighter to enhance the specific characteristics from each crop.  This tends to give a focus on these roasted coffees for drinking black, extracted by filter or espresso as the unique characteristics are often lost with the addition of milk.  If you do add milk to these coffees we recommend to add a little less to let the real flavour shine through.

Yirgacheffe is a small micro-region within the much larger region of Sidama. However, Yirgacheffe coffees are so distinct and so well recognised internationally that they are grouped into their own special category.
Yirgacheffe itself is a small town of about 20’000 people, located somewhat centrally in relation to the other coffee growing areas of Sidama between the large towns of Dilla and Agere Maryam.
Three other small woredas or zones around Yirgacheffe that have very similar coffees and are grouped in the same classification are Wenago, Kochere and Gelana Abaya.
Top grade washed coffees from Yirgacheffe are renowned for bright citrus acidity, often with a lemony character and excellent sweetness. Coffee is a native plant to Ethiopia and Yemen and thus grows remarkably well. Ethiopia is one of the few producing countries to consume more coffee than they export.
