To many, Ethiopia is regarded as the birthplace of the humble coffee bean. The story goes that a young goat herder noticed his flock becoming energetic after eating some strange red berries on the ground. After trying the berries himself he felt a huge surge of energy. The herder had just discovered coffee beans. While this story may be a myth, the reality is that coffee has been grown and enjoyed in Ethiopia for centuries and is where the world’s love for coffee began. Amongst the many beans grown and harvested in Ethiopia, the ones from the Yirgacheffe region are some of the best in the world. In this bean, a perfumed floral aroma leads into a crisp and complex fruit basket flavor. A milky body provides the backbone for the fruit and aromatics, creating a harmonious balance. The cup finishes with a lingering, pleasant mouthfeel.
