A truly exquisite cup. This natural Ethiopian is gently floral, brimming with overtones of cherry, buttercream, and vanilla extract. Smooth acidity carries through a velvety body. Clean and sparkling from start to finish.
Aricha is a very famous area for coffee in Yirgacheffe. While Yirgacheffe became famous decades ago for being the first place washed coffees were produced and recognized for quality in Ethiopia, Aricha became famous for it’s natural coffees. Aricha is just a few kilometers from the town of Idido and the community of Wegida, and this small area of coffee production changed the whole perspective on Yirgacheffe coffee, when a producer from that area experimented in the early 2000’s with the first special preparation naturals. Those first Idido and Aricha natural selections became legends in the specialty coffee industry, and these communities continue to be a place recognized for its unique quality and flavor profile.
