Yirga is our favorite!  Most people recognize the earthy quality of Colombian coffee beans - after all, it is one of the largest exporters of coffee in the world.  But the thing that distinguishes Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee is the altitude at which it is grown.  The city of Yirga Cheffe sits 6,200 feet above sea level!  

What does that mean for the beans?  It means that the beans are smaller and more dense than most coffee beans.  This makes your coffee more acidic and it does not leave that earthy aftertaste that is the hallmark of lower-altitude beans.  That is why it is described as having a "citrus" flavor - because leaves a crisp or "bright" feeling in your mouth as you enjoy it!
