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".

Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Aricha natural process

Country of Origin: Ethiopia
Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Aricha natural process
TIP: You can save products to your favorites list if you log in
We've brought in many exceptional Ethiopian coffees over the year but this natural (dry) process Yirgacheffe may be the most stellar to date. Mr. Surafel Birhanu owns the Kebel Aricha processing mill in the Gedeo zone outside of the town of Yrgacheffe. About 700 small-plot farmers bring their ripe cherry to the mill for sorting and drying on the raised beds seen in the picture. This is some of the highest elevation coffee in all of Ethiopia, ranging from 1950 to 2100 meters. After 4 to 6 weeks of meticulous inspection and turning (to avoid overfermentation) the withered cherries are transported about five hours east in their parchment to a mill in the capital, Addis Ababa, for final milling, bagging and export.
“Aricha” received the ECX (Central Liquoring Unit) highest grading class classification (Grade One), which is clearly reflected in an outstandingly well-bodied, intensely chocolatey cup. “Fruit bomb” designation for sure…the green coffee alone, mostly small and dense beans, augurs Raspberry Beret and Strawberry Fields forever. One of the most satisfying pourovers of my coffee life this morning from the first roast! Light roast accentuates the fruit...blueberry, strawberry, lime...and the finish is sweet. Go-with anything chocolate! A world-class pourover.

New arrivals streaming in... As the PLAGUE wears us all down at times, roasting is a salve for my spirit, and new crop arrivals are fun to share.

A fresh batch of Longberry Harar enters the cool-down process...time to check for Waldos!
"Yirgachefe Harfusa Inkoop? OK, I admit, half the fun of this coffee is the name. I am infatuated with all those exotic vowels. I tried to convince the kids that we should name our new kitten "Yirgachefe Harfusa Inkoop" but they want to call him Tommy. Sigh. Delicious! Full, chocolately entry to the palate but not monolithic, shot through and enlivened with green grass, smoke, and cherries. A very round texture, and clean finish. "
