Sweet, intricate, lavishly floral. Complex floral notes (lavender, lilac), honey, sweet citrus, a crisp base of fresh-cut cedar and roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Vibrant, juicy acidity; light though silky mouthfeel. Cedar and cacao nib in particular lead into a dry, lightly flavor-saturated finish.
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 floral notes. Like virtually all Ethiopia coffees, this coffee is produced by villagers on small, garden plots interplanted with food and other subsistence crops.Pachamama Coffee is wholly owned and governed by small-scale farmers’ cooperatives in Peru, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Mexico and Ethiopia. Its coffees are roasted daily in small batches in the United States and shipped directly to customers. This coffee is certified organic by CCOF. All profits produced by this coffee are paid directly to the member-owners of Pachamama Coffee. Visit www.pacha.coop or call 530-204-7554 for more information.
