About Yabitu Koba
This coffee comes to us under the careful eye of the Yabitu Koba manager and coffee legend Feku Jebril, and is grown at some of the highest coffee growing elevations in the world. Coffees from this region of Uraga are relatively new, and have only really existed in their own right for around ten years. Before that, they were trucked across the border, blended, and sold as Yirgacheffe. Luckily for us, these unique coffees are now being processed and sold separately, and have become some of our favorite flavor profiles from Ethiopia.
About Ehtiopian Landrace
Ethiopia is widely acknowledged as where coffee originated, and its production continues to represent about 10% of the country’s gross domestic product. Estimates guess that there are potentially up to thousands of varieties growing in Ethiopia, making it home to the most coffee biodiversity of any region in the world. Given the tradition of coffee production in Ethiopia and the political interworkings of the Ethiopian coffee trade, it is extremely difficult to get single variety coffee lots from Ethiopia. This is changing, albeit very slowly. Most Ethiopian coffees are blends of the many Ethiopian varieties, and referred to simply as ‘Ethiopian Landrace’.
About Jarc Selections
Varieties developed by the Jimma Agricultural Research Center (JARC) are referred to as JARC selections. There are around 40 of these varieties being grown in Ethiopia today.
