Rocko Mountain - Ethiopia

Pack Size
Grind


It's back! - this is a coffee that needs no introduction. This is the sixth time in a row that we have bought this coffee and yet again, it is set to be our best seller. 

In the cup, you can expect the usual strawberries and floral notes but this time we have a blueberry, lime and dark chocolate thing going on too. As always, the processing has been perfectly judged - so, there is a hint of booziness but everything is really well balanced. Classy but wild. What more could you want? 

Whether you are using this bean for espresso or filter, you're going to absolutely love it, it's been a good few years since we've enjoyed it quite this much. Just stunning coffee. 

Origin:  Haricha Woreda, Godeo Zone. 

Owner:  Co-operative owned, various Smallholders. 

Varietals: Heirloom

Processing: Natural

Yirgacheffe is both a town and a grade of coffee in Ethiopia. The town itself is located in the Gedeo zone in the Southern Nations and Nationalities Peoples Regional State (SNNPRS) in Southern Ethiopia. More than any other country, Ethiopia has a broad genetic diversity among its coffee varieties, with each type having distinctive taste, shape and colour. As a result, each region in the country can offer a different flavour profile, forming the grading system for Ethiopian coffees e.g. Sidamo, Harrar, Limu, Djimmah etc. It is widely argued that a Yirgacheffe grade coffee can offer one of the most distinctive flavour profiles in the world with a pungent floral aroma and intense citrus flavour.

Processing in Yirgacheffe can take the form of both washed and natural, with most of the coffee growing at over 2000 metres above sea level. Much of the coffee grown in Ethiopia is done using traditional methods, under shade trees alongside other crops and without the use of chemicals. Coffee from Yirgacheffe is often referred to as ‘garden coffee’ as it is grown on very small plots, often in the back yard of small dwellings.

Working in partnership with Addis Exporter, a business with more than 100 years experience in exporting high-quality coffee from Ethiopia, we have been able to select an incredible natural processed coffee from smallholders based around the Rocko Mountain in the Haricha Woreda, Yirgacheffe. These smallholder farmers have hand-picked their cherries and sold them to a local trader who oversees the processing and sorting before selling the beans to the ECX who grade according to SCAA standards. Addis Exporter then purchases the top quality lots from the ECX and select the best for their ‘Rocko Mountain Reserve’.

Remember! - Shipping is now only £1.50 on our 250g bags, using First Class Royal Mail. If your order totals more than £35, then shipping by DPD is FREE! - you can also order online and collect your beans from us (see here for details).

Lovely coffee

This is not a coffee to down in one, but one to smell, sip and savour every mouthful. It sits so gently in the mouth and the flavour explosion is one to enjoy. I love this one as a filter or a little form, it holds its own but yet is delightful smooth. Normally I find Ethiopian coffees a little acidic, but rocko goes against the norm. Would I buy it again.... simply yes

Incredible coffee!

First time ordering Rocko Mountain, but wow, the flavours are incredible! Strawberry and lime when drunk as an espresso and dark chocolate in a flat white. I can hardly ever taste these things but this is on another level! Will be buying again!
