Better late than never...

So it took some time for me to write a new entry in my blog. I guess I over estimated my output of articles, but what the hey!

This weekend we went to a friends cabin in the mountains, and brought 250g of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffe. We didn't have a grinder but the ground beans kept well the whole trip and it was great coffee! I've read a lot about Yirgacheffe and had high expectations, and they came through.

Many consider Yirgacheffe to be the finest of Ethiopian coffee, and I can't disagree. It has a rich body and a floral bouquet (I thought I smelled some lavender in there somewhere) and smooth mellowness.

The barista at the coffeebar where I bought the Yirgacheffe also recommended an Ethiopian Harar which had a surprisingly distinct smell of wild berries, but in the end I opted for the Yirgacheffe.

The next time around I'll buy whole beans and grind them per serving (since I have a grinder at home). I think that will make it taste even better.

(I lifted the map above from another website... Hopefully they don't mind.)
