Ethiopia Yirgacheffe KONGA Grade 1 (2016)

  • Very Smooth
  • Poppy Seeds
  • (un)Ripe Apricot

Ready for a new Ethiopian Coffee, from our Direct Trade program?

After struggling in 2015 with Yirgacheffe coffee’s, we bought 3 at once on our (buying) Trip to Origin this year.

Konga is about four kilometers South of the town of Yirga Cheffe and nearby both Hafursa and Biloya. We’ve always liked the Konga micro region in Yirgacheffe for both its strong citrus and supportive stonefruit flavors of peach and apricot, and this year’s selection has this all, along with nice bergamot overtones. What do you want more?

The coffee is fully washed and dried on raised beds on very high altitude, peaking up to 2250 meters above sea level!!! Unique.

To end, a little more info on the grading : Very often a Grade 1 tastes like they washed away the flavors, but this Konga is still standing and packed with fruity, herby and seedy notes.
