Black Lion - Organic Yirgacheffe Heirloom - Ethiopian Coffee
The Black Lion - Yirgacheffe Heirloom, is one of Sextant’s prized water-friendly or natural prosses organiccoffee offerings. This heavy, juicy, and aromatic coffee packs a ton of flavor. Sweet and slightly spicy notes are accentuated when drying under the Ethiopian sun creating a malty and peach tea finish. This coffee is a classic example of what makes Ethiopian coffee so unique and unforgettable.
Yirgacheffe is a small but fertile region, producing some of the world’s most well-known coffees. Yirgacheffe coffees are comprised of uncatalogued and unique coffee varietals, called heirloom, that have never been cross-fertilized with more common varietals such as those found in large-scale coffee farms. We’re lucky enough to be able to buy this coffee directly from this region through an export company set up by Sextant to source traceable Ethiopian coffees.

I love Ethiopian origin coffees, but this one stands out to me. It's incredibly flavorful, with LOADS of fruity goodness coming through. My wife, who is not super into coffee, smelled the beans and immediately said "mmmm raspberry! blueberry!" - all without reading the label's tasting notes. While Sextant coffee always delivers a quality cup, Black Lion has quickly gone to the list of favorite coffees.
I just bought my second bag of Black Lion for my pour over set up. Highly recommend these beans, absolutely delicious.
Just delicious coffee. You won’t regret getting some of this. Enjoyed in Chemex and pour over
