    This is our first Reserve offering from Ethiopia and we are so excited to showcase a stellar natural coffee from a single farmer. Coffees like this are rare and we are fortunate to be able to bring a coffee like this to you, thanks to a project between Royal Coffee in Oakland and the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers’ Cooperative Union. In 2012 Royal and YCFCU started a program with the intent to showcase coffees grown by individual member farmers. YCFCU would keep coffees submitted from these farmers separate during processing, and the selected growers would receive price premiums based on quality. The growers were chosen based not only on the quality of their coffee but on how consistently they would be able to produce such quality. Wolde Hirbe was one of the first farmers to be singled out, thanks to his three decades of meticulous farm management. He owns two plots of land, one in the Kebele of Jemjemo (where this coffee is from) and one in nearby Dodoro.

    His 4-hectare plot in Jemjemo is full of kurume, wolisho, and dega landrace varieties. Kurume is known for small leaves and berries, while wolisho’s fruit and foliage are larger. Dega cherries and leaves are smaller than wolisho’s but larger than kurume’s. These are not particularly robust definitions of these varieties and that’s because they aren’t scientific classifications. Landrace varieties are ones that were chosen for cultivation from the wild coffee forests in Ethiopia, then propagated throughout the coffee farms of the region. These varieties have adapted to growing conditions and become staples of coffee production in southern Ethiopia.
