It’s day 6 of my coffee taste testing and I’m starting to get really into all these wonderful single origin coffee beans. If you could only smell the aroma when the beans are freshly roasted, it’s simply amazing.
Today’s coffee is from Ethiopia and it’s a bit hard to pronounce: Ethiopia Yirgacheffe or Irgacheffe. The beans are known for of the highest quality Arabica coffee beans in the world. Ethiopian Yirgacheffe has a high quality unique fragrance and distinctive flavor.
If I could compare this coffee I would say it’s close to Brazil Fazenda, they both have a strong yet smooth taste. There’s a well-balanced amount of flavor which consists of peach to the distinct amount of citrus, but the main flavor and smell is caramel. YUM! How about a nice cup of freshly brewed single origin Ethiopia Yirgacheffe coffee enjoyed with a hearty breakfast with bacon and eggs to start your relaxing weekend. Afterwards, take a stroll on the beach to clear your mind.
PRO TIP: Due to its bright notes and vibrant aftertaste, this coffee makes an awesome iced coffee so don’t be afraid to add some ice and milk to enjoy!
Today’s coffee is prepared the old fashioned way in the coffee maker. The Brazil Fazenda is smooth with light acidity and has a mild and buttery taste with hints of hazelnut and cocoa.
Highlights: A strong coffee with a smooth taste to it that I really enjoyed. It’s a great coffee for everyday and I would recommend it for someone who doesn’t drink coffee daily too. The cocoa flavor is very enjoyable with every sip you take. The best food to pair with would be a breakfast sandwich on a croissant.
PRO TIP- If you feel the cocoa taste is too strong, add some sugar to balance it out with some sweetness.
Next week, Jose is trying our Burundi which is full-bodied with notes of black tea, sweet apricot, juicy cherry and a tang of orange juice.
