Ethiopian Tasting Kit - Wild or Mild?
Meet Haji and Zuri.
Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee is considered to be one of the very best coffees in the world. It comes from the region of Yirga Chefe in southern Ethiopia. Yirgacheffe beans are grown slowly in a warm and tropical climate with moderate wet and dry seasons on mountainside "fincas" (farms) at 5400-7200 feet above sea level. The variety, terroir, and processing methods create a brilliant floral body with shimmery citrus notes resulting in a clean, light, complex bean.
Natural Yirgacheffes that are patio dried like our Haji and Zuri Yirgacheffe have an elegant and smooth “silky” or “juicy” mouthfeel.
The single-origin we offer "Haji Yirgacheffe" is intentionally a medium-light roast to retain the incredible bouquet the Yirga Chefe region is known for. Americans tend to prefer darker roasts so we've also created a blend of our single-origin Ethiopian Yirgacheffe with our very best Guatemalan single-origin dark roast bringing you a rich, full-bodied Ethiopian/Guatemalan blend that opens up the brightest fruits and richest depth as you've come to expect from Tiny Goat. This blend is called Zuri Yirgacheffe.

The phin filter is unique from other pour over methods, particularly if you have a gravity press model, as used in the fat miilk phin filter, because it compresses the grounds and restricts the speed at which the water can flow downward. This results in a much stronger cup of coffee without the introduction of air many experience with the pour over method.
