Ethiopia Yirgacheffe - Wenago


This Yirgacheffe is a Grade 1 natural processed coffee from the Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia. Wenago is one of the woredas in the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region (SNNPR) of Ethiopia. "Woredas" is a third level administrative division in Ethiopia, same as a "district", but that's what they call them there!

Roasting Notes: Light roasted is best, and no more than City +, otherwise the flavor goes right out of your roasters exhaust. Don't be too concerned about the coffee being "grassy" from under-roasting. This one doesn't do that unless the under-roasting is extreme. The roast may appear uneven, but this is normal for this bean. Let the roast "rest" for at least two days before brewing and be amazed. Taking it a little darker will bring out dark chocolate notes.

Cupping Notes: Very intense aroma on the dry, wet, and break. Elegant wine, cedar, strawberry/blueberry, and coffee blossom. Dark chocolate. High on sweetness. Creamy body. Pleasant, lingering aftertaste.

Note: these are unroasted green coffee beans
