Cupping Notes ;-The ground coffee produces a fruited mixture of sweet dried fruits punctuated by nutty chocolate notes. Light roasts are the most fruit-focused, while hitting the City+ threshold delights in a cup laced with cocoa and caramelized sugar sweetness, along with some of the more typical dry process-type fruited notes. The more rustic undertones take a back seat in the brewed coffee, which is more fruit focused in the light roasts. ‘Strawberry’ was the first flavor to come to mind in my City roast level brew. The cup cools to an aromatic strawberry flavor, leaning toward an artificial flavoring type in intensity, and moves into some caramelizing sweetness that plays off the fruited tones like caramelized pineapple. Acidity level is moderate considering that dry process coffees are often on the flat side, and comes across like fruit juice. City+ sees cocoa roast flavors well integrated into the fruited profile, with a chocolate-covered strawberry flavor. The fruited flavor notes are somewhat obfuscated at Full City, though not gone altogether.
Aftertaste is long and complex as you might expect from a dry process Ethiopia.
Literally translated as “Land of Many Springs,” Yirgacheffe has the ideal topography, elevation, and water sources to produce and process exceptional coffees. This region is located inside of the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and People’s Region (SNNPR) of Ethiopia, which is home to 45 distinct people groups. Coffee farmers in Yirgacheffe are typically multi-generational small-scale landholders, sometimes farming only a few hectares. Most coffees in Yirgacheffe are sold as cherry to centralized washing stations that help further separate flavor profiles.
Yirgacheffe is considered by many to be the birthplace of coffee and the coffee trees grown in the region are a naturally occurring mix of heirloom varieties cultivated among other species in coffee gardens and coffee forests.
