Ethiopia is widely recognized as the birthplace of coffee. Thousands of varieties are still growing wild in forests throughout Ethiopian coffee regions, and many farmers will still collect seeds from wild coffee trees to plant in their gardens for their yearly crop. This vast genetic diversity, along with an ideal climate for coffee growing, leads to some of the most dynamic and highest quality coffees we can source every year. When executed well, this more traditional method of processing coffee can yield some very exciting flavors in Yirgacheffe coffees. In this coffee, flavors of raspberry, mulberry, and lime balance a velvety body and maple sweetness, finishing out round and creamy.
