Konga Coop Ethiopia Yirgacheffe
|Roaster Location:||Acton, Massachusetts|
|Coffee Origin:||Yirgacheffe growing region, southern Ethiopia.|
|Review Date:||September 2008|
Richly low-toned aroma: caramel, dark chocolate, fir. In the cup lightly syrupy mouthfeel, soft but vibrant acidity, with a deep, quiet, lavish complexity: distinct floral notes, dry wine- and berry-toned fruit, a hint of cherryish chocolate.
A region of lush, rolling hills in south-central Ethiopia, Yirgacheffe is the most celebrated Ethiopian growing region. The Konga Cooperative includes 1,700 members who grow coffee interplanted with fruit and food crops on plots averaging 1.25 acres. Terroir is a microroaster selling only elite single-origin coffees, no blends. It specializes in medium roast styles designed to foreground the character of the green coffee. Terroir is the creation of George Howell, one of the world's leading coffee visionaries. Visit www.terroircoffee.com or call 866-444-5282 for more information.
Who Should Drink It
A wet-processes Ethiopia that both expresses its floral type and softly and lavishly transcends it.
