Richly floral, gently pungent. The floral notes are spicy and rose-like. Complicating hints of fir, citrus, cocoa, raisin. Bright but balanced acidity, syrupy mouthfeel. Very sweet, gently flavor-saturated finish.
Consisting of nearly 45,000 active members, YCFCU is the acronym for the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union. Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctively 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) typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity with a particular emphasis on citrus and floral notes.
