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.

Luca looking forward to his first bottle of caffeine...
"Sumatra Triple Pick Lintong There's a swamp mud jungle funk going on here. Aromatically, Doctor Livingston's cherries have fallen out of his knapsack and lie among the moldering leaves, next to a bog. An Irish peat bog. Lightly singed. In Sumatra. Go figure. That smoky peat-water thing carries to the body - ROBUST I believe is the word. Sweet, voluptuous presentation quickly yields to the gripping, chunky tannins wrapped in licorice that dominate the midpalate. Longgggg finish spiked with orange rind, cardamon,wood shavings, and leaf mould. This is potent stuff. Diane can't drink it. (She loved the Etheopian Mothership.) My inner orangutan, however, loves it. "
