Organic Fair Trade Ethiopian Yirgacheffe by Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Review |
Roast: Medium Review Date: September 2004
Origin: Yirgacheffe growing region, Sidamo Province, southern Ethiopia. Price: $8.95/12oz

Blind Assessment: Chocolate and delicately intense lemon notes carry decisively from aroma through cup to finish. The cup is integrated and harmonious, with a softly sweet acidity and a slight herby twist to the lemon.

Notes: Its tendency to high-toned, floral and citrus sweetness has made Yirgacheffe, from a lushly beautiful range of hills in southern Ethiopia, one of the world's most distinctive coffees. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles.

Who Should Drink It: Those who appreciate a gently exotic medium-roasted cup.
