Story of the bean:
All coffee throughout the world descends from plants which originally grew wild in the highlands of Ethiopia. Within coffee’s birthplace, the Yirgachefe region is world-renowned for its distinctively floral and fruity coffees. Using modern processing techniques, this coffee was triple sorted by size, color, and density until the final product reaches a point of near-perfection. This pure expression of ancient heirloom coffee is unlike any other.

Amazing Coffee/Amazing Company
I had this company while dining in Lewes, DE, at the fabulous restaurant Heirloom. The coffee was so good that I knew I had to order some right away. That same week Todd Carmichael, La Colombe co-founder, offered to pay off the $22K+ school lunch debt in a local school district. What is not to like about this coffee and this company?
great breakfast coffee!
I look forward to every cup and the taste & aroma is just like the first time, every time! There's no way to get tired of this beautiful light, crisp brew :-)
My love of Central American coffee has been toppled by Ethiopian Yirgz. I now believe the taste of coffee is result of its soil. What do you think?
Cup of Goodness
Just a great, smooth cup of coffee with a hint of citric brightness. Beans from this region are my fav. This is an excellent example of why.
The Ethiopian is just as smooth as the first coffee we received!
