The Yirgacheffe region in southern Ethiopia is one of the most famous coffee cultivation regions in the world
Every year we travel to Ethiopiaourselves to select 3 to 4 outstanding coffees from 50 to 60 different coffees. After many long cupping (= tasting) days we found this coffee from the Konga cooperative in the Yirgacheffe region, which more than fulfilled our high expectations: A coffee with a lot of body and charisma, which inspires us with its mild and complex taste. The coffee is named after the region in the southwestern mountainous region of Ethiopia. Coffees from this region are among the best in the world every year. The pleasant spiciness and fruity aroma have led to its legendary reputation among coffee connoisseurs. The farmers grow Arabica coffee plants in shady forest gardens at an altitude of 2,000 to 2,200 meters in the Ethiopian highlands.
There the coffee cherries ripen slowly in the cool mountain climate. Thanks to the altitude, they have more time to develop their characteristic fruity and spicy taste.
Cultivation in traditional forest gardens also leads to a high natural resistance to pests, the preservation of plant and species diversity and natural protection against erosion. The coffee cherries are harvested by hand and carefully processed. First, the cherries are separated from the pulp at the washing station and washed. Then the beans are dried in the sun with regular and careful turning. Then they are sorted again by hand so that only the best beans are exported.
