There’s a reason why Ethiopian Yirgacheffe consistently ranks among the best coffee in the world, and certainly the among the best in Ethiopia itself.
Yirgacheffe (also spelled Yirgachefe, Yergacheffe, or Yerga Chefe) is a micro-region within the much larger region of Sidama (or Sidomo) in southern Ethiopia. It is widely considered the birthplace of coffee.
Ethiopian Coffee is among the worlds most unusual, offering a range of flavors from winey to fruity. Ethiopian Yirgacheffe is soft, with floral tones and is one of the best choices for iced coffee. Coffee from Ethiopia is a delight that shouldn't be missed!
Ethiopian Yirgacheffe has a light to medium body
Coffee holds a special place in Ethiopian culture that transcends that of the coffees from other origin countries. The majority of the crop does not even leave the country and is drunk with great ceremony by the Ethiopian people. This is in contrast to other origins where coffee is a cash crop, with the best being exported, and the dregs kept locally and drunk unceremoniously with plenty of milk and sugar to choke it down.
One taste of an excellent Ethiopian coffee and you will understand this passion for the bean.
