The Ethiopian Yirgacheffe was carefully roasted for you by Anodyne Coffee Roasting Co. This full natural coffee was grown by the Gelena Abaya Wet Mill in the Gedeo Zone region of Ethiopia between 1,800 - 2,000 meters above sea level. The cup is fruity and juicy with notes of berries and melon with a chocolate finish.
Delicious coffee. You can smell the berries right out of the bag, and the taste doesn't dissapoint. You get a juiciness from the berries and a clean melon taste that compliments it very well. I was nervous when I saw "chocolate finish" in the description but it wasn't strong at all. One of the best Ethiopians we have had yet.
Immediately you are hit with bright blueberry. Through a chemex an initial note of matcha also came through. These fade into a soft cashew center which then finishes with deep toffee and juicy honeydew. My only complaint would be a very ashy lingering aftertaste. As the coffee cools, the nut notes begin to dominate. Overall a very well rounded flavorful coffee that shows off a more diverse Ethiopian bean.
Delicious coffee. Definitely has a chocolate aroma and tasting note. I also agree with the fruity(berries) and juicy tasting notes, especially at the end of each sip. It's a light coffee but very good. I think I prefer these tasting notes over the caramel richness of my last coffee from Kickapoo (which was good too).
This is one of the best coffees that I have enjoyed = fruit forward and a full flavor. Delightful - I'd order again and again.
Beautiful. So fragrant and fruity. Delicate and flavorful brew.
Heavy on the sweet fruits. Blueberries. Nice balance of acidity. Brewed 25g in hario v60. Haven't used in chemex yet.
I don't care for this one as much. Too fruity for me.
Compared to the last coffee that we received (Equator's Ethiopia Sidama Ardi) this coffee seems to be a step down in taste. In the Equator blend had a distinct aroma and finish to it. This coffee has a pleasant aroma, but it just smells like....coffee. It does not taste bad, but there is nothing very distinct about it. I would probably struggle tasting a difference between this one and Dunkin's regular blend. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, as I drink Dunkin during the week and then brew these specialty coffees on the weekend.
I guess I just expected a bit more "wow" from this blend, similar to that feeling when I brewed the first pot of the Equator blend. One other thing to note, the bag that we received had very tiny coffee beans in it. Maybe 1/3-1/2 the size of the beans that were in the Equator blend. I am not sure if this is a result of the region the beans came from, or what. I am not complaining about it, just making a general comment.
I enjoyed this coffee a lot. It was a close tie between this coffee and my last coffee. I might have enjoyed the last one a little better.
It tasted a little sour. It was toasty and not burnt and I liked that.

Another good bag of coffee. It was lighter, not as muddy in the cup, bright, fruity. Tough to really say we have a strong preference and direction in terms of coffee, other than we like good coffee, not crazy dark or acidic. We just did a coastal road trip and loved Scout coffee in San Luis Obispo and Dunes coffee in Santa Barbara, but don't love Cafe Moto coffee roasted here in San Diego.
no dairy needed to take off an edge or add any roundness; the mouth-feel was just beautiful on its own. Very juicy.
Fantastic Coffee! Great Selection! Love having these Ethiopians in the mix.
Plum with a acidic finish. The bean size on this one was a trip.
Sweet, with chocolate boldness.
Both times I've received this coffee it has met the mark. It has great flavor. Ethiopia Yirgacheffe is one of my favorite
Tastes like fruit and citrus but a bit too subtle for what I like out of fruity coffees. Still tasted good though. I brewed it with a press, Chemex, and V60, and the V60 brought out the fruit flavors the best.
Anodyne's Ethiopian Yirgacheffe is the best coffee I've ha this year. The aroma is so good and only second to the taste. Think of tart raspberries and cherries with a sweet finish. The aroma of the brewed coffee reminds me a lot of cherry cordial. The coffee tastes good from the first sip until the last. No bitter notes whatsoever.
Great job Anodyne!
