Yirgacheffes - what we affectionately call "Yirgy's" - are among our absolute favorites. The typical profile is boldly citric, generally lemon, with distinct hints of cocoa. Depending on the specific Yirgy, it is also not at all uncommon for there to be hints of berry, apricot, or peach in the cup and floral, jasmine-like notes in the aroma. The complexity of it all is almost too much for the senses.
The Adado name is known for producing a consistently high-quality cup. Culled together from a few thousand small farms - some producing just a few bags of ripe cherries - from wild, heirloom, native coffee trees, this coffee is a testament to the seriousness of coffee in Ethiopia.
