|Yirgacheffe growing region, south-central Ethiopia.
Sweetly crisp, balanced. Caramel, roasted cacao nib, walnut, wisteria-like flowers, a hint of port wine in aroma and cup. Gently brisk acidity; light, crisply smooth mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates around nut, flowers and port wine suggestions in a sweet but lightly drying finish.
Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This is a “natural” or dry-processed version, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit, encouraging a flavor profile that is rounder and lower-toned than the more familiar wet-processed floral- and citrus-toned Yirgacheffe profile. This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade certified, meaning it was purchased from one or more small-holding farmers at a “fair” or economically sustainable price. Worka is one of twenty-two primary cooperatives located in the Gedeo Zone of Southern Ethiopia organized as the Yirgacheffe Farmers Union Established in 2010, Red Rooster is an organic-certified micro-roaster focusing on socially conscious coffee and high quality coffee.

Who Should Drink It
An unusually delicate though intricate dried-in-the-fruit Ethiopia. Exhilarating but subtle.
