Richly and ripely fruit-toned. Tartly juicy raspberry, sandalwood, roasted cacao nib, lavender in aroma and cup. Crisp, lively acidity; dry, satiny mouthfeel. Lavender and roasted cacao nib carry into a crisply floral-toned finish.
Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Most Yirgacheffe coffee is prepared by the conventional wet method, in which the skin and pulp are removed from the beans or seeds before they are dried, encouraging a cleanly high-toned, often intensely floral- and citrus-toned cup. This Yirgacheffe is a “natural” or dry-processed version, however, meaning the beans/seeds were dried inside the fruit, encouraging a deeper-toned profile, more pungent than bright, though still extravagant in its aromatics. Founded in 2015, the Greater Goods mission is to enrich the lives of coffee-drinkers through passion, creativity, innovation and commitment to the consistency of the specialty coffee the company roasts and to the local causes supported with its proceeds.

An unusual dried-in-the-fruit or “natural” profile: ripely juicy yet crisply dry and lavender-toned.
