Foundry Coffee Roasters - Rocko Mountain Reserve: Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia

Sorry - Sold out - it's been popular!

Getting product details...

This is the new crop from amazing Rocko Mountain Reserve in Ethiopia. Some of the money made from the sale of this coffee goes to the Girls Gotta Run Foundation. This is a really great organisation that promotes women’s rights in a very smart way.

From Lee @ Foundry Coffee Roasters:

It's back! This is the third year in a row that we have bought this exceptional coffee from our friends at Falcon Specialty.

Yirgacheffe is both a town and a grade of coffee in Ethiopia. The coffee plants have a broad genetic diversity and as a result, this area produces some of the sweetest, most distinctive coffee that we have ever had the pleasure to work with.

Most of the coffee in Ethiopia is grown without the use of chemicals and is often referred to as 'garden coffee', as it is often grown by individuals in very small plots.

In the cup you can expect to be thrilled by the stunning sweetness which sits along wild florals and fruit. For us, strawberries and jasmine spring to mind. Thanks to the natural processing, the funk is still there but it's more elegant and delicate this time, giving this coffee a more sophisticated feel somehow. The coffee is clean and well balanced making it suitable for all brewing methods.
