Product Info

The Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Fair Trade Organic Coffee is vibrant and intensely aromatic, with fruity and subtle earthy flavours. This is a lively 100% arabica coffee for those who can appreciate a complex, flavourful cup.

Ethiopia is perhaps best known as a poor country, but it actually produces some of the most unique, sought-after crops in the world. Agriculture makes up 41% of its' GDP with coffee making up the largest portion at 28%, handily beating out any other country in Africa.

The elevation of Ethiopia qualifies the Yirgacheffe as Strictly High Grown (SHG) / Strictly Hard Bean (SHB). These higher elevations means that the coffees take longer to grow, delivering more nutrients to the coffee bean and allowing it to develop more flavour.

  • Altitude: 1800-2200 meters above sea level
  • Harvest: October - January
  • Processing: Fully Washed, Dried on beds
  • Aroma: Sweet (Cane Sugar), Lemon
  • Flavour: Fruity, Spicy, Floral
  • Body: Smooth, Heavy
  • Acidity: Sweet, Citric (Lemon)

Price is per 16 oz (1 pound) (454 grams) Ethiopian Fair Trade Organic Coffee. Note that the recent Yirgacheffe crop was slightly more expensive than last year.

Choose your roast and grind from the options above when adding to cart. All of our coffee is roasted, ground and bagged upon order.

Also Available: Ethiopian Sidamo Coffee.

This delightfully rich and aromatic coffee has put my spouse back in the coffee drinker category. There is no bitter or 'sour' stomach after imbibing, and it lends itself to any brewing method we have tried so far, It has a very distinct 'mocha' quality, which is ramped up when we add our organic cream from a grass fed jersey, turning it into more of a cappucino after using the immersion blender...YUM! The stronger the brew...the better the end product, whether using a medium or dark roast....but dark is best!

The flavour was ok, but it didn't seem to agree with my coffee machine. Even on the finest setting it ran too fast. I had this as an espresso roast, so maybe it's not really suited for this. Darker than the Silver/Gold Espressos but I think I will go back to my favourite the Silver over this.

I've tried many coffee beans over the years and I keep the labels of the ones I really like. I've been pleasantly surprised by the taste and quality of Ethiopian coffee, it wasn't the first country that came to mind when I think coffee, but it is now :) I've certainly added this label to my collection.

To me this tastes like coffee without the bitterness and with almost no acidity. A friend of mine who dislikes the taste of coffee - but loves the smell - thought this was the most drinkable coffee he had ever tasted. I also get some unusual flavors like hay (?) out of it, maybe it's what's meant with "earthy"... In a French press I liked it much better at 25g/400ml than what this site suggests (40g)

This is my all time medium roast favourite. Full flavoured, perfect acidity, the best morning coffee to enjoy before during and after breakfast. I purchase a pound every other order. I like to try others but always come back to this one.

I've been a huge fan of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe for a long time but since I moved several years ago, I haven't known where to buy it until I stumbled upon it here. I absolutely loved this blend. The first sip was like sinking into a wonderful memory. I will certainly be ordering this again!

It was really good! I'm glad I got it in dark roast because I think I would have found it too mild on medium roast. So far I'd say this one was my second favorite to the Columbia one! I'd buy it again, if I didn't want to try so many others!

Great coffee with loads of flavor and scent. When you open the bag the aroma is very pleasant and the beans have a nice shiny oil coating to them. Really like this one but there is a slight tangy/metallic aftertaste that isn't my cup, although the rest of the office can't say enough about it. Maybe it's just me?

This coffee is very standard. Taste a bit like 6$ brakfast restaurant! Would suggest ultra dark roast if this doens't burn it! Perfect coffee for those who don't like it strong and very tastefull.
Roast: Dark Roast

BuyCoffeeCanada: The roast level above "Dark" is "Espresso", which can absolutely be brewed in a coffee maker as long as the grind is correct. Roasting a coffee to "Espresso" removes any need for the coffee to be a high grade, or organic certified coffee however. This is another case where the Yirgacheffe may not be suitable for the "Quebec" style of coffee (ultra dark). We would recommend the Ethiopian Sidamo in an Espresso roast.

This coffee just didn't taste good. It was lacking the body and flavour that make coffee enjoyable.
Roast: Medium Roast

BuyCoffeeCanada: Staff Note: We tend to notice that people in Quebec like their coffee on the extra dark side, more of a heavy coffee flavour instead of the nuances you get with medium-roasted fine coffees. This may not be the right choice for that flavour palate.

This was my first purchase of coffee beans after purchasing a grinder and and a French Press. This Ethiopian coffee not only has a gorgeous aroma after grinding but the taste is lovely. I have now become a "coffee snob". Restaurant coffe is now off my list.

The beans were a little lighter in colour than most medium roast coffees, but the flavour is bold enough for my taste. There is an interesting nuance to the taste and it is not at all bitter. I drink my coffee black and freshly ground, so the quality is important. I would buy it again and I would recommend to a friend who likes to try a new taste experience.

Ethiopian Yirgacheffe is my personal favorite, my go to for a bright textured cup of coffee. There is a reason Yirgacheffe is such a prized bean, this coffee is grown at high altitude as are many of the best coffees and packs a light yet distinct flavor with less bitterness than most others. I highly recommend you purchase this coffee and this is the cheapest price I have found.

Very interesting flavour when pulled as an espresso - very sharp contrast between the Mocha espresso roast and then moving to this bean (in espresso roast) - very noticeable. Great aroma and a little hint of fruit remains at the espresso stage too.

We bought fair trade organic Ethiopian Yirgacheffe for years from another direct to home, fresh roasted supplier. Our delivery guy joked that is was the best smelling package that he delivered. We stopped buying for a few years to reduce our expenses but I missed the taste and fair trade value. I found this first order somewhat disappointing - flavour seems quite bland compared to what I remembered and had expected. No better tasting than what we have been buying at Costco from Starbucks.

I am a great fan of East African Coffee. I had formerly been able to get Yirgacheffe through Second Cup, but they stopped carrying it. Delighted to see it here. Previous order allowed me to compare to Limu. MUCH prefer Yirg, mostly because of its distinct earthy quality

This is a blissful experience! I purchased the medium roast and it was just perfect; bright and well-balanced. I had to play around with the proportions but finally got the flavour spot on. As with other organic and fair-trade coffees, I had to increase the ratio of coffee to get the flavour I wanted. The result is one of the best cup of coffee I've had anywhere.

More body than most African coffees while still having the some of the brighter grassy notes I'm used to in say a Kenya AA makes for a complex layers of flavour. My personal favourite.

I ordered this knowing I have never cared for Yirgacheffe, so with that in mind, I still didn't not care for it. I really wanted to but it's just not my favourite. It's bitter and almost sour. This review is based purely on my palette, not the quality of the bean or BuyCoffeeCanada who I buy most of my coffee from.

OMG! I was not going to buy this coffee as I had a pre-conceived notion that because Ethiopia was a war torn, very poor country that how possibly could they make a great tasting coffee...BUT how wrong I was. This is the best tasting coffee I have ever tasted. It is not bitter at all. It has a lot of taste. The Organic Coffee from Peru is a very mild and delicious coffee and the Guatemalan Coffee to me has a flavor in between the Organic Columbian and the Organic Peruvian Coffee. Each one is delicious and each of these have a unique distinct flavour all their own. One would never be bored with coffee here. In the past I used to get stomach aches when I drank store bought coffees but I have never had one when drinking these Organic Coffees that I have been buying from this company for quite sometime now. They are absolutely Terrific!!

We love this coffee. Have tried many different coffees from around the world and always find ourselves comparing them to Ethiopian Yirgacheffe and they always come up short. It has a luscious flavour without any harshness either up front or in aftertaste. Guests always want to know what our coffee is and usually remark on how much they enjoy the coffee at our house.
