Ethiopia is regarded by many as the birthplace of coffee. It has been cultivated there since the 1500s, in much the same way it is grown today. Most coffee grows wild in the shade of other trees and is referred to as forest grown coffee. Other coffees grow in gardens along with other crops, with minimal agricultural intervention. Some is a bit of a combination, where producers lightly cultivate and weed their forest crop in order to ease harvesting. In any case, most smallholders produce an average of only 5 bags per year.

One of the most notable coffee producing regions in Ethiopia is Yirgacheffe. This small region is located in the southern part of the country, adjacent to other notable coffee regions like Kochere and Oromia. It is home to fertile soil, high elevation and a tropical climate with moderate wet and dry seasons.

Our Ethiopia Yirgacheffe is washed and dried on traditional raised beds, which promote even drying with optimal airflow. The heirloom varietal, idyllic climate and processing methods combine to create a signature flavour. The profile is renowned for its bright acidity, delicate body and floral aroma.

Agaro Dry Mill

Ethiopia Yirgacheffe comes to us from the Agaro dry milling station. The coffee is a collection of the efforts of 498 smallholder farmers. Their coffees are handpicked at peak ripeness, machine pulped and undergo anaerobic fermentation before washing. Finally, as is typical to the region, the coffee is sun-dried on raised beds for seven to ten days, depending on sun and humidity.

Flavor notes: Citrus, tropical fruit, berries, floral; bright acidity, tea-like body. 

    Available in 200g, 450g and 1kg resealable bags made of recycled materials.

    Very nice citrus hints. Nothing too overpowering. Perfect for mid afternoon coffee.

    A toast to this roast

    I love African coffee and used to buy my beans from other websites before stumbling across P&P. Purchased 2 x 1kg bags of Ethiopia Yirgacheffe beans, the first is almost gone in under two weeks (usually they last around a month)!! I'm converted!! The roast has brought out so many flavours, no bitterness and loads of citrus notes, well done P&P :-)

    My second time with this roast just as good as the first soft delicate flavour I prefer lighter roasting and this does it for me.
