Our review of Marley Coffee's One Love Ethiopia Yirgacheffe.

Many thanks to the folks at Marley Coffee for sending us a selection of their coffees.

In our last review we looked that their Jamaica Blue Mountain Blend.

Today’s review looks at their One Love Ethiopia Yirgacheffe coffee.

Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee. In fact, every coffee tree in the world is a descendent of the trees in that region.

Ethiopia is also of special significance to Marley Coffee, because it is the spiritual center of Rastafarianism, which Bob Marley brought to prominence during his lifetime.

So we can look at One Love coffee as a tribute both to the origins of coffee, and to Bob Marley.

We have reviewed a number of Ethiopian coffees over the last few years, including a few different Yirgacheffe roasts.

We always look forward to these tastings, as the coffees are subtle with some unique taste notes.

We ground the coffees beans just before roasting, and brewed them with our Bonavita drip brewer.

And we weren't disappointed with the result.

While this is a medium roast, the tastes are still subtle. There is a touch of acidity, but as the coffee fills your mouth, that soft bitterness is accompanied by a layer of smooth, dry chocolate sweetness. Not very sweet, just a hint, and very dry.

Riding the acidity and sweetness, you get notes which perhaps hint at lemon and berry flavors, but are better described as floral.

It's hard to describe, but this floral note is typical of a good Yirgacheffe, and it is brought out very nicely in this roast.

Well worth a try.

You can buy One Love Ethiopia Yirgacheffe at Amazon.com.
