Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Kana – June

More than any other country, Ethiopia has a broad genetic diversity among its coffee varieties, with each type having distinctive taste, shape and colour. As a result, each region in the country can offer a different flavour profile, forming the grading system for Ethiopian coffees e.g. Sidamo, Harrar, Limu, Djimmah etc. Yirgacheffe is therefore both a town and grade of coffee in Ethiopia, and it is widely argued that a Yirgacheffe grade coffee offers one of the most distinctive flavour profiles in the world, with pungent floral aroma and intense citrus flavour.

 

The town itself is located in the Gedeo zone in the Southern Nations and Nationalities Peoples Regional State (SNNPRS) in Southern Ethiopia. Processing in Yirgacheffe can take the form of both washed and natural, with most of the coffee growing at over 2000 metres above sea level. Much of the coffee grown in Ethiopia is cultivated using traditional methods, under shade trees alongside other crops and without the use of chemicals. Coffee from Yirgacheffe is often referred to as ‘garden coffee’, as it is grown on very small plots, often in the back yard of small dwellings.

 

This is a natural processed Heirloom varietal bean growing at 1950-2150 MASL on smallholdings in Haricha Woreda, Yirgacheffe.

These smallholder farmers have hand-picked their cherries and sold them to a local trader who oversees the processing and sorting before selling the beans to the ECX who grade according to SCAA standards.

 

In the cup you will find flavours of wild fruits, lime, caramel and milk chocolate.
