NOTE: All of our premium Arabica coffees are roasted to City+ to Full City roasts, showing minimal-to-no surface oils….we want all of the flavor to stay in the beans until the coffee is ground! Despite the additional descriptors, the first flavor and aroma you'll think of is "COFFEE".

"Yirgacheffe" means many things in coffee industry; of course it is an actual town (also spelled Yrgachefe)but also a source of flavor profiles unique to the region as well as Ethiopia. Blue Nile is a brand given to a proprietary blend of heirloom coffees produced in the Gedeo zone around the actual town of Yirgacheffe. It was jointly developed by importer powerhouse Royal Coffee and the Keffa mill where the super-sorted cherry is processed. Grade 1 is the highest quality designation in Ethiopia and is rated as "near-zero defect", which translates to an extraordinarily clean and sweet cup profile. The predominance of bergamot and Bing cherry/chocolate notes is only found in the very best Yirgacheffes. This makes an amazing single origin espresso, complex and sweet from start to finish.
The coffees are grown at between 1900-2300 meters above sea level, fully-washed and sun-dried on raised beds.

Barista extraordinaire Andrea Spella poses with Badbeard outside the Spella Cafe in downtown Portland.
"Had to call AGAIN about the Yirgacheffe Anbassa Bunna. I've NEVER had an Ethiopian washed coffee as clean, smooth and flavorful as this one. Beats any of the Beloyas I've tasted, and a blueberry note that just won't quit. Easily worth a 95 point rating. Thanks! "
