Our Ethiopia Yirgacheffe is flowery and sweet with a smooth, buttery aftertaste. This is a medium-bodied, bright coffee that has spent many months on our Roastmaster's "favorite coffee ever" list.

The YCFCU union is a massive collective of 26 co-ops, with 44,000 farmers. Coffee from the union won 1st and 2nd place in the washed coffee division of the SCAA cupping contest in 2005 and we think we know why: they grow some of the best coffee we've ever tasted!

The union went Fair Trade in 2003 and since then have built 3 schools and provided scholarships to 18 college students, along with using the extra revenue to drastically improve the quality of the coffee farming.
