Irgachefe is a town in central southern Ethiopia in Yirgachefe District. Located in the Gedeo Zone of the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples' Region, this town has an elevation between 1,880 and 1,919 metres above sea level.

Weather17 °C, Wind NE at 6 km/h, 70% Humidity.

The birthplace of coffee ladies & gentlemen in 850 AD and 34% of the nation's exports. Ethiopian coffee is Volcanic.

A young goat herder named Kaldi noticed increased energy and liveliness in his flock after munching on coffee beans. Kaldi gave the beans a try, noticed the effects, and the world's infatuation with coffee had begun.

When you first meet the Yirgachaffe, you're greeted by a deeply complex, enticing, floral aroma.

It's gentle, rounded, easy acidity matches the floral scent to perfection and complements the smooth warming taste. Hints of fruit, currants, and cinnamon flow over the taste buds, leaving complex flavours of fruit, wonderful floral notes and a tingly, spicy finish.

Yirgacheffe coffee is wet processing (washed) coffee grown at elevations from 1,700 to 2,200 meters above sea level, and is considered the best high grown coffee in southern Ethiopia, an exotic coffee region known for fine coffees. These elevations qualify Yirgacheffes as Strictly High Grown (SHG) / Strictly Hard Bean (SHB) coffees, where coffees grow slowly due to the altitude, allowing additional time for the tree to deliver nutrients to the coffee and develop the best flavors.

A fine Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee displays a bright acidity along with intense, clean tastes and a complexity of floral notes in the aroma, sometimes with a hint of toasted coconut. Cupping notes frequently mention the aftertaste being vibrant, and the coffee may exhibit undertones of berry or wine.

Some premium Yirgacheffes tasting notes indicate it can have a slightly nutty or chocolaty. quality. Others display subtle tones of tangerine and citrus. These qualities make it a preferred varietal for a refreshing iced coffee.

^Please be sure to use filter water and best 7 days from the date of roast. We roast every Saturday and ship domestically Monday mornings, leaving enough time for the beans to de-gas while in transit, for a fresh roast to cup.   

Barty has spent months perfecting this roast profile with love for you guys, it’s my little way to continue to give back, paying it forward, getting to our original target of $110K for Reachout.com.au

As such all orders are made to order from my very own micro-roastery in Darlinghurst.

Barty Black Qualitative Feedback

Sweet cinnamon and bergamot aroma. Banana brulée and french toast taste, and maple syrup sweetness. Stable texture/mouthfeel. Good for both filter and espresso coffees, with or without milk.


Love this bean and profile. Super well balanced and for me, I make a double espresso most mornings. Tastes like blue berries and has rich crema. Great for pour-over as well when I'm feeling for a longer-black to sip on through my day.
