Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Horse by Torreo Coffee Review |
  • Torreo Coffee

    Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  • Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Horse

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: September 2002
Origin: Yirgacheffe growing region, southern Ethiopia Price: NA

Blind Assessment: The medium-dark but rather aggressive roast preserves a touch of acidity and lemony sweetness amid the dominant roasty tones. More complex than balanced, the closest sensory analogy I can propose is roasted lemon drops.

Notes: Yirgacheffe is the most lavishly fruity and floral of the several fruity and floral wet- processed regional origins in southern and western Ethiopia. Torreo is a quality oriented, mainly wholesale specialty roaster serving the larger Philadelphia area. Visit or call 888-2-TORREO for more info.

Who Should Drink It: A versatile coffee, with its Yirgacheffe lemon tones and a hint of acidity shimmering in the distinct roast tones.


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.
