Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Black Lion Special - Espresso
Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Black Lion
Gedo Zone, Yirgacheffe
Elevation: 1,950-2,150 MASL
Tasting Notes: Strawberry jam, blueberries, apricot, tropical fruit, floral aroma.
The Gedo Zone of Southern Ethiopia is known more commonly for its proximity to the town of Yirgacheffe. In an area where over 80% of the population make their income from farming, it is little wonder this region has a strong reputation for amazing coffee. The Black Lion is made up of a group of small holder farmers who carefully handpick their coffee. It is then processed and hand sorted for export. The best of these lots is called Black Lion Special, boasting Ripe Strawberry aroma and flavour, tropical fruit notes and an incredibly clean cup profile.
Our favourite by far!
