Strong yet delicate, this washed Yirgacheffe is our version of a classic car. The Z means “zero defect”, each bean hand-sorted for perfection. We taste gingered pear and a floral-honeycomb finish. Sweet body; smooth ride.
Delicious and tantalizing notes of apricot and ginger are joined by delicate hints of chamomile and lemon. Yirg-Z has a mouth-wateringly juicy body. Its sparkling acidity shines and carries all these wonderful elements through a wonderfully floral finish.
"not a "love" but a "like a lot" this was a rather light blend for my taste i guess. and i just wanted to love it more, but i didnt get all of the 'advertized' tea-type flavorings. but, that being said, it was a very smooth and enjoyable cup of coffee made in the french press. "
"Very light light coffee. Typically Ethiopian Yirgacheffe is one of our favorites from other roasters, this particular coffee was a little to light with very subtle flavors. Definitely bright like many African coffees but not very bold. "
"Those that said there were acidic notes were right. The floral comes through as well, which made it enjoyable. "
"I saved this sampler for last to try because I thought the flavor description (combo) seemed strange. I can’t say I tasted those “notes” or flavors, but it was a light, smooth easy to drink cup of coffee. I really liked this one! "
"was ok i got a pretty acidic flavor also some sour notes"
"Not my favorite but would be good for those who enjoy the acidic kinds of coffees with the floral hints. I prefer other types but not terrible."
