Yirgacheffe has become famous for coffees that taste like blueberries. The dense vegetation is a product of the warm tropical climate with moderate wet and dry seasons. Most of the coffee is grown in the shade by small producers who use organic practices. The coffees are grown from 1600 to 2400 meters above sea level in these plateaus. The multitude of micro-regions creates complex profiles depending on which washing station a particular coffee comes from.
Natural coffees are typically delivered on the day they are harvested and are first selected for ripeness and quality before being rinsed of dirt. Then they are laid out on raised drying beds or tables, where they will be rotated constantly throughout the course of drying. Drying can take 8-25 days on average, depending on the weather.
