  • Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Harfusa

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: January 2010
Origin: Yirgacheffe growing region, Sidamo Province, southern Ethiopia. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Delicate, round and balanced. Sweet fruit and floral notes saturate aroma and flavor. In the cup the fruit nuances are so dense and complex they defy specific association, but they roll out with crisp voluptuousness into the long, sweet finish.

Notes: Certified organically grown. Their tendency to high-toned floral and citrus sweetness has made the wet-processed coffees of the Yirgacheffe region, a lush range of hills in southern Ethiopia, among the world's most distinctive. Based in the San Diego area, Bird Rock Coffee Roasters is a retailer and wholesaler that focuses on organic and socially responsible coffees. Visit or call 858-551-1707 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A poised and complete version of classic the classic Yirgacheffe profile.
