Location: Olympia, Washington
Origin: Gedeo Zone, Yirgacheffe growing region, southern Ethiopia.
Est. Price: $16.75/12 ounces

Delicate but extraordinarily intricate. Passion flower, orange, loquat, sandalwood, frankincense in aroma and cup. Sweetly bright, juicy acidity; light, silky mouthfeel. Flavor resonates far into a long finish with very little loss of complexity.
This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade certified, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a “fair” or economically sustainable price. Yirgacheffe coffees like this one processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying) typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity, often with a particular emphasis on floral and citrus notes. The Biloya Cooperative was established in 1976, and in 2002 joined twenty-plus other primary cooperatives located in the Gedeo Zone of Southern Ethiopia to form the Yirgacheffe Farmers Union. Olympia Coffee Roasting is a small-batch wholesale and retail roasting company with a youthful, no-nonsense style and a commitment to high-quality organic coffees.
