Ethiopia's Coffee Gem: Yirgacheffe
Yirgacheffe's Coffee Heritage
Yirgacheffe, nestled within the broader coffee-producing area of Gedio, Ethiopia, is celebrated for its exquisite coffee beans. These beans are renowned for their delicate aromatics and clean citrus flavors when processed using the traditional washed method. However, in a quest for distinctiveness, Gedio's producers have ventured into uncharted territory by experimenting with the natural processing method.
Natural Process Innovation
While Yirgacheffe's washed coffees are prized, the Gedio region's experimentation with the natural process adds a new dimension to the coffee landscape. The natural process involves drying the coffee cherries with the fruit's flesh intact. This method has been embraced by forward-thinkers like Abdullah Bagersh, resulting in an exciting profile that deviates from the familiar washed coffees of Yirgacheffe.

During the crucial first 48 hours, the cherries are vigilantly turned day and night. This attention ensures even moisture evaporation, fostering consistency and a pristine cup profile. While the natural process presents challenges like mold and uneven airflow, Bagersh's mastery transforms these hurdles into triumphs, producing a coffee that magnificently displays the potential of Natural Yirgacheffe beans.
Crafting Coffee Perfection
After meticulous drying, the coffee cherries undergo meticulous processing. The removal of skin, mucilage, and parchment is executed with precision.
