When first approached by World Vision to partner with them on this project we liked the idea. Once we had tasted Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Hama, we LOVED it! What a pleasure to be able to support World Vision in their work in Ethiopia, and support these farmers by enjoying one of the most beautiful coffees we have ever come across.
A percentage of our profits from sales of this coffee has been returned directly back into the area development project with HAMA Coop, at Kochore in Yirgacheffe.
Our Yirgacheffe is an elegant well structured, all consuming coffee experience. It starts with immediate sweet stone fruit, nectarine or apricot, then gains austerity in the mid palate with toasted almonds and soft milk chocolate to smooth the way for sip after sip. As a long black…memorable, and the amazing flavours just last longer.
Brewed as a filter this coffee is sweet and delicate and enhances the very high altitude character with clean finesse and assurance you are drinking an ancient bean.
I love this coffee and while I buy new interesting single estate offerings when available, this is our mainstay coffee. Complex rich layered flavours honey cocoa vanilla timbery with great flavour and length. Ethiopia is the home of coffee and the balance and intensity here are perfect.
I’ve been buying coffee for years from Jasper coffee and have tried about 30 single origin beans. I do plunger coffee in at the office and use beans at home with our espresso machine. I started off with a different African bean until I discovered Ethiopia Yirgacheffe, since then I don’t drink any other coffee!! I’ve been doing this for 8 years now and I still can’t can’t enough of it. Highly recommended!!
