Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Coffee
Out of stock
Typical of a Yirgacheffe coffee, this light roast has an extraordinarily distinctive flavour profile, characterised by smooth chocolate notes and a hint of juicy pomegranate.
Grown close to the home of the first coffee bean, the coffee grown around the tiny town of Yirgacheffe in southern Ethiopia is wet-processed according to traditional methods. Light-bodied with a silky smooth sweetness, it's delicious with breakfast.

Brew the Perfect cup
When making coffee always use freshly drawn and boiled water – wait a few seconds for the water to cool so you don't scald the grinds. Cardinal rule? Never re-heat brewed coffee! Freshness is everything.
Cold Brew Coffee
Cold Brew Bottle
We love cold brewing coffee from Ethiopia and Kenya: it really highlights those delicious berry and citrus notes.
The Yirgacheffe region of southern Ethiopia is one of the most famous in the world, renowned for its distinctively fruity coffees.
The Birthplace of Coffee
Most people acknowledge Ethiopia as the birthplace of coffee, though how it came to be discovered is a matter of debate. One story has it that an Ethiopian goatherd stumbled upon a strange bush with red berries while out tending his flock. When the goats ate the berries they began jumping around excitedly – and the rest is history.
