Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Worka G1
Many people know Ethiopia Yirgacheffe is a coffee origin, coffee from this origin is very likely to be citrus or tangerine, but what's more? Well, it's hard to tell. How come? This is because Yirgacheffe is quite a vast area since we are not talking about coffee from that particular town named Yirgacheffe from Sidama only but those near by (like Gedeb) and carry citrus or tangerine character. Yes, when we talk about Yirgacheffe today, we meant an extensive compact growing district. We are going to introduce to you the Yirgacheffe from the Yirgacheffe Worka Cooperative. Yirgacheffe Worka Cooperative is a first grade small local farm organization or unit member of the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperatives Union (YCFCU). Worka support the living of 310 individual members by their hard working on producing high quality organic and fairtrade certificated green coffee beans (certificate by YCFCU). With a relatively high altitude of 1650-2700 m and 1200-1700 mm annual rainfall, average of 457,000 kg pleasantly fragrant coffee were beautifully produced from their red brown soil. Worka started operating since 2005, though they are young, their beans managed to assist the Klatch Coffee (famous coffee shop in USA) in winning the Good Food Award in 2012 and 2012 Best Coffeehouse award.
Other than the cooperative it self, let us take this opportunity to have a little introduction on the G1. G1 is the short form of Grade 1, this is a grading system used by the YCFCU in grading wash process bean to ensure the quality produced from their members and also most importantly as bargaining chips for a fair trade. There are two grades in this grading system, G1 and G2, which only no more than 3 pieces of defects found in every 300g of bean could be graded as G1, and it will be a G2 with 4-12 defects and no grade for more than that.
We are honored to offer you the G1 coffee beans from Worka now with detailed suggested brewing method to ensure your perfect cup :)
