Micro-Lot coffees are available on an extremely limited basis and consequently only at specific times of the year. These will be unique, fully traceable and have very small lots from 5-40 bags.
Featuring subtle fruity and chocolaty undertones, this Light roast also preserves a kick strong enough to get anyone ready to face the day. Whether you are riding your bike or herding goats, you’ll know Yirgacheffe is the discovery of a lifetime.
This roaster picks up all of the subtle notes that a hand picked coffee should have! Like other premium quality gourmet coffees, Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee beans are picked by hand. Yes, it's a tedious process, taking numerous visits per tree each year, all because coffee cherries do not all ripen at the same time. A single branch of a coffee tree might very well bear blossoms, green fruit, and ripe cherries simultaneously. An experienced "picker" can pick about 200 pounds of ripe coffee cherries in one day. Although 200 pounds may seem like a significant amount, it will yield about 50 pounds of green beans after processing. *note: This roaster actually puts the "Roasted on" date on every package!
