Black Lion - Yirgacheffe Heirloom - Ethiopia
Every Sunday my partner and I go to Sextant to pick up our beans for the week (and coffees to-go) with our dog. It’s become a favorite ritual of ours.
We are obsessed with the Black Lion which is a fruity and chocolatey, well balanced roast. It smells heavenly! I love starting my morning with it.
Love the coffee, love the shop. We are so grateful to have Sextant in our neighborhood. <3
Small cozy coffee shop and a roaster which has a decent selection of specialty coffee (mostly Ethiopian but that is their specialty)
I especially appreciate that they have a decaf beans! Not very common for specialty coffee shops to care about someone who wants some coffee but won't or can't have caffeine
Some of the freshest, best tasting coffee I've ever made at home. Truly, thank you for all that you do. Received the beans at my house less than 24 hours after ordering - amazing service!!!! I do wish the beans were a little less pricey when comparing to other local beans...I would order more all the time instead of this being a "treat".
YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT
Yirgacheffe Heirloom is one of Sextant’s prized water-friendly coffee 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 coffees 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.
