Yirgacheffe is a “Coffee Growing Area” based on the Commercial Coffee Contracts from the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX). Yirgacheffe is located in the south of Ethiopia and it’s widely considered the birthplace of coffee. Many great coffee lots come from this area as it contains the popular areas of Worka, Koke, Konga, Beloya and the renowned Chelelektu.
Traceability of Ethiopian Coffees
In the past, lots purchased from the Yirgacheffe area could not be differentiated by mill eg. Konga or Chelelektu. Government regulations required all coffees from this region to be simply labelled “Yirgacheffe”. However with the recent changes made to the ECX, we are now able to trace some lots back to the town or even specific washing station they were produced. Also, in order to help roasters distinguish and identify these coffees, we continue to provide colour names that represent the cup profile for some of these beans.
» Coffees grow in small farmers backyards in the Yirgacheffe region. The coffees are known as “Garden coffee” and they are harvested from October-January
» Once lots get combined on washing stations, coffee is dried on African beds under sunlight
» Lots then get combined and sold through the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX)
» After coffee is bought by Primrose, lots go under further quality control screening
