Illy MonoArabica Ethiopian upholds the revered name of one of the worlds most exquisite coffees. Found in the Yirgacheffe region of central Ethiopia, Illy beans are sustainably shade grown under the protection of lush, nearly inaccessible forests, and are tended and harvested by hand. A particularly sweet coffee, MonoArabica Ethiopia features fruity notes of melon and citrus faded in jasmine flower giving a light-to-medium, elegant body. Selected from high grade beans with zero defects, Illy's Ethiopian Yirgacheffe beans are processed with the washed method and roasted to a medium grade. French press, drip, pour over and vacuum are the most popular brewing methods. Espresso lovers who prefer flowery and citrus notes will love Ethiopia from Illy. Traditional medium Italian roast 100 percent Arabica whole bean coffee. 8.8 ounce nitrogen flushed canisters to maintain freshness.
Illy's signature blend for Italian espresso comes from 9 different origins around the world. For the first time, Illy has made available three components of this blend: three single origin coffees, each alive with distinct characteristics borne of region-specific soil, altitude, rainfall, sun and cultivation profiles. Aroma, taste and body vary origin-to-origin, country-to-country, to quite wonderful effect in the cup. Illy MonorArabica is a path to explore Illy more deeply.
Located deep in the verdant forests of central Ethiopia, the region of Yirgacheffe is often referred to as the birthplace of coffee. Here coffee is shade-grown in rich soil, handpicked by artisan producers in small plantations or home gardens. The result is one of the finest coffees in the world. Selection of high grade beans (screen size 14 and above) prepared for Illy with zero defects, processed via the washed method.
The peculiar climate and cultivation method of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe produce a coffee that naturally presents a pleasant arrangement of aromas, including floral and fruit notes which unite to create a truly rewarding coffee experience.
