Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: July 2005
Origin: Yirgacheffe growing region, Sidamo Province, south-central Ethiopia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: A coffee that displays the more pungent side of the Yirgacheffe profile. Distinct ginger-snap notes in the aroma with suggestions of rosemary and pine. Sweeter in the cup, dominated by lemon and ginger-snap. The pine and Mediterranean herb notes resurface in the long finish.

Notes: Ethiopia Yirgacheffe is one of the world's most distinctive coffees. Ancora Coffee is a wholesale and retail roaster and local cafe chain that emphasizes its commitment to "small-batch artisan roasting." Visit or call 800-260-0217 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy bouillabaisse and retsina.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
