Ethiopia Yirgacheffe // Dark Roast

| /

We decided to switch things up and turn our Ethiopia Yirgacheffe (usually a light roast) into a dark roast. This 85 point coffee from Ethiopia has quickly become a favorite for Pike Creek Coffee fans. Grown at over 2000 meters above sea level in the mountains of Ethiopia, this single origin dark roast has cupping notes of cocoa, molasses, and a hint of lemon. The Ethiopia Yirgacheffe is currently our favorite dark roast offering.

Another Winner!

This was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint! Admittedly, my palate is not refined enough to detail the more complex flavors of this bean, but it has a full flavor, no acidic nastiness and it stands apart from the other dark roasts I’ve tried. I could be wrong, but my impression is that It doesn’t seem to be roasted quite as dark as say, Big Bold Joe (still my favorite) and it makes me wonder how this bean would hold up as an extra dark roast. In any event, it makes a fantastic cup of coffee with a unique flavor. If you enjoy dark roasts, you can’t go wrong with this one!

Unique, fresh & tasty

Yirgacheffe’s unique floral character never appealed to me in a light roast, and I’d never seen it dark-roasted anywhere. Pike Creek to the rescue! Delicious.

Just what I wanted

I had seen this single origin bean on your website and am glad you decided to make it dark roast. A million years ago when Starbucks was new this was my favorite. Glad to order it locally and appreciate it more. Delicious.

Order 2 bags!

This is a dark roast only drinking family and we are a little picky about it. We were hesitant to even trey since it had been a light roast originally. It is smooth, full bodied and rich flavored. Could become tied with Morning Fog Lifter as our household favorite. We will order 2 bags next time
