This roast is the best of both worlds: it has the bright fruit notes you would expect from a Yirgacheffe but is also balanced by the richness you want from natural processing. The punchy berry notes combine with the smooth chocolate and vanilla to form a profile that kind of reminds me of that one perfect bite of a hot fudge sundae with the cherry – for me, it’s the perfect after-meal brew. This is a single station coffee from Aricha kebele in Yirgacheffe. There are a few coffee stations in close proximity here, this with the name “Aricha” attached, and it’s very close to Yirgacheffe town. This grade 1 preparation means the coffee receives extra special attention, hand sorting from the drying tables to the final milled coffee, separating out under and over-ripe coffee cherry, and any defective beans.
