|Yirgacheffe growing region, Sidamo Province, southern Ethiopia.
Honey-like sweetness in the aroma with notes of flowers, wine and aromatic wood. Balanced, floral toned acidity, medium body with smoothness in mouthfeel. The floral qualities carry into the flavor with hints of savory herbs, berry and citrus that fade to milk chocolate. Chocolate turns fruity and bittersweet in the finish, along with a touch of astringency.
Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces intensely floral- and fruit-toned 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 is removed before drying) express floral and citrus notes with particular intensity. Atomic Cafe is a coffee house on the North Shore of Massachusetts that began its refined in-house roasting program in 2005. Visit www.atomicafe.com or call 978-922-0042 for more information.
