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.

Very Bitter

I was excited to try based on the reviews, but the coffee I received was extremely bitter. Too bad.
