The beans from Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia are widely recognized to produce one of the world's most exquisite coffees. We know you'll instantly fall in love with its flowery, tangerine citrus and toffee notes. Its rich flavours have been compared to that of a fruit-forward burgundy wine. The rushing whirlpool of fragrance and flavour set this roast apart from any other bean you will encounter.
Taste The Difference: Each bag contains 400g (~1lb) of freshly roasted fair-trade organic beans that are crafted to order.
Roast Recommendation: Medium Light to Medium Dark

Ethiopia is the epic home of the coffee plant. It's estimated that there are between six and ten thousand coffee varieties in Ethiopia alone — yes, six to ten thousand! One of the very finest comes from the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU) and the renowned Yirgacheffe region. This heirloom bean grows in high elevations under a soft canopy of native shade trees and has a diehard following among coffee fanatics.
We hope you not only love our "Vineyard Falls" roast, but that you also get a chance to explore the Niagara region as well.
