Day 22 - Coffee Advent Calendar 2022

Yirgacheffe: a must.

A recognized region of Ethiopia, Yirgacheffe is often a discovered origin of this coffee region. Bearing the name of one of the flagship washing stations in this region, Dumerso, this coffee is the result of the work and knowledge of Hirut and Mahder Birhanu, acquired 12 years ago. Lighter roasting, it is more to be appreciated as a filter. It is here the know-how of our friends at Cantook, in Quebec, that you will have the pleasure of discovering.
