Coffee was first discovered in Ethiopia in the 9th century AD. There's a quaint (but probably a little embellished) story of a herder's goats first discovering the plants and enjoying the stimulating properties of the beans. True or not, Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee and produces astounding coffees. For this edition, Mr Black uses coffee from one wash station in Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia. Known as the king of coffees, fruit from the Yirgacheffe region has a well-deserved reputation for being the highest quality available.Notes of earl grey and bergamot, and underlying hints of roasted hazelnuts. Generous zesty orange marmalade on the palate with a long-lasting pleasant tingling finish. The exceptional quality of the beans from this region makes this one of the best iterations from Mr Black's seven year history.
