Our wonderful Yirgacheffe is back! We have bought this gorgeous coffee by the Adado cooperative for the third consecutive time this year. This coffee, which is processed as a «natural», was grown in Daro Kebele next to the Aboole river in the Bule District.

The cooperative unites almost 1'300 smallholders, of which more than 200 are women. It occupies around 185 workers during harvest season and is part of the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU). The YCFCU acts as a trader for its member cooperatives and takes care of sales and marketing. It further invests in the community with various projects, e.g. building a school, improving infrastructure for the people to reach isolated areas, running up workshops and meetings for its members. All cooperatives that are part of the YCFCU are located in the Gedeo Zone in southern Ethiopia.

In the past, we have bought various coffees from the YCFCU, all of which were of great quality. We stuck with the two favorites: Bule Adado and Worka, which we roast for espresso – although it tastes just as great brewed as a filter coffee.

These coffees of the native varieties Kudhume, Welisho and Dego are certified with the Fairtrade and organic labels at origin. They are sorted by hand, sun-dried and covered overnight as well as during the hottest hours of the day for protection. The drying process can take up to 30 days. With the YCFCU's own trucks, the coffee is brought to Addis Ababa, where it goes through various quality checks before it's exported and then reaches Europe by way of Djibouti.

Bule Adado is fruity and won our hearts with its amazing berry and citrus notes. This year, the floral aroma is all the more elegant and reminds us of jasmine. Sweet and juicy, yet wonderfully balanced, we like this coffee for almost every occasion.

Brewing Recommendation

This coffee we prefer clear and clean so we try to avoid too much turbulence when pouring. To achieve a sufficient extraction despite we recommend to use quite a fine grind setting and a recipe with several pours:

18g coffee, 300g water at 93°c, Hario paper filter, Origami Dripper

00:00 Pour 50g of water, stir with spoon
00:40 pour another 150g
01:00 pour another 50g
01:15 pour another 50g
01:50 swirl lightly

Extraction time: around 2:50

Our coffee is also available in three different subscriptions: Filter Subscription, Espresso Subscription, Espresso Brazil Subscription.
