About Yirgacheffe Area
Ethiopia is widely recognised as the ‘birthplace’ of Coffea arabica. And of all Ethiopian coffee growing regions Yirgacheffe is perhaps the most well-known and recognised. There is a certain romanticism that exists in the traditional bright, floral and complex qualities of Ethiopian coffees that so many of us never tire of experiencing. Spanning a remarkable topographic rollercoaster, the ECX Area of Yirgacheffe climbs from 1200 masl in the East of the Gedeo Zone, up to 3200 masl in the West, with only 30km in between. This dramatic expanse of height has led to a bio-diverse environment where native trees grow at the altitude in which they benefit most, including the many wild mutations of coffee varietals – this must be why the cup profiles of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffees are just so unique.
