About this coffee:
Ethiopia produces some to the most unique and fascinating coffees in the world. Ethiopian coffee is known by consumers as highland coffee because it is grown in the highland areas of the county with a normal growth rate to full maturity and bean size.
The finest Yirgacheffe possesses an intense floral aroma which is also noticeable in the cup. The washed Yirgacheffe is one of the best highland grown coffees. It has a fine acidity and rich body.
The Yirgacheffe region is well-known for its high quality wet processed coffee because there is a well-established linked structure that connects coffee farmers, processing-plant owners, governmental organisations and coffee-purchasing enterprises, leading to effective quality control and efficient marketing.
Yirgacheffe coffees are produced only from freshly-picked, fully-ripe cherries. Harvesting is done very carefully, under close supervision to ensure that only the best cherries are used.
Project Waterfall: Granite Goat is supporting Project Waterfall, a charity initiative bringing clean drinking water, sanitation and education to coffee growing communities. The latest project is in Berbere in the Oromia region of Ethiopia. Once completed around 40,000 people will have access to clean drinking water. Adjacent to Oromia is Yirgacheffe, one of the most notable coffee producing regions in Ethiopia.
We will donate £1 to Project Waterfall with every bag of our Ethiopia Yirgacheffe sold.
