Why you’ll love it: Heirloom coffee varieties from the Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia are known for their citrus flavors. Sweet and refined, this bright Ethiopian coffee will please the perfectionist in all of us.

Story of the bean: Yirg for Yirgacheffe, Z for zero defect. Ethiopian coffees from the Yirgacheffe region are world-renowned as distinctively floral and aromatic. "Zero defect" means this coffee was triple sorted by size, color, and density until it reaches a point of near-perfection.

Workers at the mill are paid well to sort the coffee seeds by hand, meaning only the very best beans make it to La Colombe. This pure expression of these Heirloom varietals results in a coffee with sweet, citrusy notes.

Smooth

This is a very smooth mild coffee. I use it for my home Late machine and it comes out tasting great every time. It has a distinctive flavor.

Surprised I didn't like it

I bought this coffee b/c it was highly rated by Consumer Reports recently. I've tried different coffees, not a lot but a number, including several medium and light roasts. I've had only one other coffee, also a light roast, I did not like, but I've liked a couple of light roasts. It makes me wonder whether this was actually the same roast and bean that Consumer Reports reviewed. Maybe a different crop? Anyway, I tried it both with a French press and with an 'automatic' drip coffee maker. Same highly objectionable flavors. My wife didn't like it either.

Light roast

If you like a nice light roasted coffee you’lllike this one. It seems the trend has gone to dark roasted coffees but to me I’ll stick to one of my favorites.

Best coffee

We recently went to a lovely higher end restaurant where they served this coffee. We had to have it for home. It’s fantastic.
