Ethiopia Yirgacheffe coffee “Octopus’s Garden”

I wrote ‘Octopus’s Garden’ in Sardinia. Peter Sellers had lent us his yacht and we went out for the day… I stayed out on deck with [the captain] and we talked about octopuses. He told me that they hang out in their caves and they go around the seabed finding shiny stones and tin cans and bottles to put in front of their cave like a garden. I thought this was fabulous, because at the time I just wanted to be under the sea too. A couple of tokes later with the guitar – and we had ‘Octopus’s Garden’! – Ringo Starr

Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Specialty Coffee. 

I wrote ‘Octopus’s Garden’ in Sardinia. Peter Sellers had lent us his yacht and we went out for the day… I stayed out on deck with [the captain] and we talked about octopuses. He told me that they hang out in their caves and they go around the seabed finding shiny stones and tin cans and bottles to put in front of their cave like a garden.

My dog is named after Ringo Starr, he is a minature border collie mix and I love this song. This song has nothing to do with the coffee I just like to theme my coffee’s! This is a fun name for this coffee.

Although this coffee can be enjoyed anywhere, in a garden or as I can imagine under the sea! Don’t think too much about it just enjoy this delicious Ethiopian Yirgacheffe.

The coffees from this region are, in many ways, truly unique. So many of the great washed coffees from Yirgacheffe are explosively aromatic, full of citrus and floral notes and have a light and elegant body, so this is undeniably one of the greatest and most interesting regions for growing coffee. The best coffees from this region fetch rightfully high premiums, and while they can remind some people more of a cup of Earl Grey team than a cup of coffee, they are absolutely worth seeking out. There are naturally processed coffees produced in this region too, which can also be exceptionally interesting and enjoyable.

Did you know that Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee?

Specialty coffee is defined as any coffee that scores above 80 points on a 100 point scale. Typically, specialty coffee is grown at high altitudes, with much care and attention from the farmer

Ground/ Beans?

Once the bean is ground up, it starts to age rapidly. The main difference between pre-ground and whole-bean coffee is freshness, flavor, and scent. When using pre-ground coffee there is the convenience of not having to grind your own coffee and doing it improperly.

Micro Roasted especially per order
