Limited Release - Specialty Coffee

This bright coffee has tasting notes of cherry, black tea, & ripened fruit. It has a pleasant mouthfeel and floral aroma. 

We have brought this coffee to a darker roast as it hold on to its origin characteristics well, and we found great balance in taking it darker to add slight bitterness with the fruit notes. 

This Micro-lot coffee from the Yigracheffe (yur-guh-chef) region of Ethiopia. Specifically the Sidamo region is a single farmer lot that was produced on a 8-hectare farm in the heart of the Gedeo Zone.  This desirable, narrow plateau, known as Yirgacheffe, is populated with savvy coffee farmers.

 

PRODUCER: Takele Mammo Denbi

When the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX) was created in 2008, the connection between farmers and buyers was lost. Blending took over, which inhibited farmers from selling their coffee direct and buyers from accessing unique microlots.  Takele Mammo Denbi, was the man who led the way for exporting single farmer coffee out of the country.  For many years, he has acted as the Managing Director of the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers’ Cooperative Union, which his farm was also a part of. Now that he has stepped down, he can include his coffee in Royal’s Single Farmer Lots Program. This program was created to encourage direct sales of Ethiopia coffee, which gives driven producers greater opportunity.  In turn, buyers are given access to single farm lots, with increased cup quality.
