Sightglass' Ethiopia, Yukro, Gera
We've switched our Sightglass Coffee pour over offering from a South American coffee to an African one! The Ethiopia, Yukro, Gera.
Sightglass is an incredibly fun coffee company to work with. The passionate staff is eager to share information on their new offerings, and almost always tuck a few sample bags in the box along with our regular week-to-week orders. The independent company is based in San Francisco and relishes in the hands-on craft of creating coffees and espressos that are simply delicious.
Say the owners (and brothers!) Jerad and Justin Morrison, "Attaining a perfect roast is a sensory craft; it’s an intuition, a smell, a sound, a slight change in color―it’s about deep attention to detail, and it comes through in every cup. We believe that knowing the story behind your coffee―where it was grown, how it was processed, and who handled it along the way―is a powerful link from the cup to the wider world."
This is one of Sightglass' two African offerings (the other was just added this month). It's an Ethiopian Heirloom variety described as having notes of orange blossom, cherry, peach, strawberry, and Meyer lemon. Expect a super fruity kick that dances in your mouth without being overly sweet. We've already received some great feedback on this one from a few regular Cafe customers who can't go a day with out their pour over fix.
