Varietal Yirgacheffe Heirloom
Aroma Blackberry, Bergamot
Roast Full City
We give this bean a full city roast to highlight its complexities and to let the blackberry and bergamot aromas shine through. This coffee has a full and juicy body with pleasing acidity, concentrated sweetness, and black Earl Grey tea notes.
This single-origin organic coffee is a Yirgacheffe heirloom varietal from the small Koke district in Yirgacheffe, Southern Ethiopia. Koke is known for its high elevation coffee production (as high as 2300m) and the complex flavour profiles and concentrated sweetness of the coffee beans emerging from the area.
These beans come from the KOKE cooperative, a collective of around 1200 coffee farmers in the region. The KOKE Cooperative is part of the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU), a cooperative society initiated in 2002 as a strategy to collectively scale-up individual operations and improve farmers’ access to the specialty coffee market through organizing.
This coffee is certified Organic and Fair Trade.
This single-origin coffee comes to you from the hills of Intag, Ecuador
via a direct trade partnership between our friends at Cloud Forest
Coffee and a local farmers’ cooperative, Asociacion Agroartesanal de Cafecultores de Rio Intag
(AACRI) in Ecuador. AACRI was started by local families as a form of
resistance to the destruction and pressures of resource extraction by
foreign mining companies in the Intag region. It provides an alternative
and sustainable (economic and environmental) form of livelihood for
local people through coffee farming.
