  • Ethiopia Yergacheffe, Inkoop Hafursa

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: July 2008
Origin: Yirgacheffe growing region, south-central Ethiopia. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: A crisp and distinctive Ethiopia wet-processed profile. Floral and tangy orange notes in the aroma with a sweet hint of honey. In the cup, vibrant, fruit-toned acidity, medium body, somewhat soft mouthfeel. Tangy citrus turns toward sweet tangerine and tropical fruit with an underlying pungent toastiness. In the finish a slight hint of astringency and a softly bitter walnut note.

Notes: Yirgacheffe (or Yergacheffe) is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces intensely floral- and fruit-toned coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Yirgacheffe coffees like this one processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp is removed before drying) express floral and citrus notes with particular intensity. Organically grown and Fair-Trade, meaning coffee purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Wild Fire Coffee Roasters is a coffeehouse and small batch roaster based in San Antonio that prides itself on quality coffee roasted in the shop.

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.
