Organic Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Natural Grade 1


FLAVOR: Blueberry, Floral, Milk Chocolate

How it tastes? This natural processed, organic Ethiopian green coffee boasts super rich blueberry top-notes. A chocolate-mousse-like viscosity holds the complexity of flavors together with grace, and an elegant finish of orange blossom and jasmine aromas.
Weight: 20 LB
How it tastes? A smooth and graceful cup of milk chocolate. Complex, but delicate notes of granny smith apples and caramel complement intriguing flavors of cacao nibs and berry tart.

The coffee’s thick chocolate mousse flavor and texture crescendo’s as it cools. Soft accent notes of macadamia nut and sweet vanilla perfectly round out the finish.

Great for espresso or light roast drip. As an espresso, dark chocolate and honey notes hug the cup as syrupy layers of candied cherries provide definition.
Recommended Roast: Medium - Dark. Medium roast develops a structured cup with green apple, dark chocolate, caramel and honey. The finish is rounded with plenty of juicy orange, raisin and nutty aroma.

Start with a hot drum and high heat, but keep the airflow low to manage early heat transfer and prevent scorched beans. Extend the Maillard phase to develop more caramelized sugars.

Dark roast develops layers of dark toffee sweetness and plum jamminess. Chocolate notes are enhanced as citrus flavors become more muted.
