|Yirgacheffe growing region, southern Ethiopia
Delicate, rich, savory. Honey, almond butter, green apple, lemon zest, marjoram in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart acidity; silky-smooth mouthfeel. Lemon zest and almond in the resonant, richly drying short finish give way to faint marjoram notes in the long.
Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive 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 are removed before drying) typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity with a particular emphasis on citrus and floral notes. Like virtually all coffees from southern Ethiopia, this coffee is most likely produced by villagers on small, garden plots interplanted with food and other subsistence crops. This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a “fair” or economically sustainable price. Established in 2010, Red Rooster is an organic-certified micro-roaster focusing on socially conscious coffee and high-quality coffee.
