Yirgacheffe is part of the Sidamo region in Ethiopia; however it's considered its own recognized micro-region due to the unique coffee profile produced on its territory. The region is known to have thick vegetation, healthy soil, and high elevations.
This coffee is sourced from Birhanu Haile, a 32-year-old producer in Yirgacheffe. By Ethiopian standards, Birhanu has a large plot of land and can produce around 200 bags of green coffee per year. Unlike many landowners, he is very hands-on and oversees all day-to-day operations during the harvest season.
The natural process gives blueberry jelly, hibiscus and honey flavours to this coffee.
