This coffee was available for a short time last year and we LOVED it. We went to reorder it and were disappointed that it sold out super quickly. When we saw it had restocked, we had to bring it back.
The first time this coffee made it to our sample table it became an immediate hit. Washed Ethiopians have always been a favorite of ours here at Sagebrush and this one does not disappoint. If you were to just read the flavor notes, you'd think this was a Latin American coffee. I realized that after we photographed it. Although it has the sweetness and fruited notes that I put in a lot of the Latin Americans, this coffee is Ethiopian. It has that bold floral tone - almost black tea-like. It is an exceptional coffee.

This is an exceptionally complex Ethiopian coffee from the Yirgacheffe region. It is collaboration with many small farmers. It is a collection of heirloom beans that then gets processed immaculately. Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctively floral- and fruit-toned coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Yirgacheffe coffees like this one processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp is removed before drying) typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity with a particular emphasis on citrus and floral notes.
