Discovered by goats
Modern-day Ethiopia is considered to be the birthplace of coffee, where coffee was discovered and cultivated. One of the most beautiful stories tells of the young goatherd Kaldi, whose goats found some coffee bushes when they were looking for something to eat and experienced their revitalizing effect. They are the reason why coffee bushes are also called "dancing goats". Kaldi himself also tried the coffee plant – first the leaves, then the flesh of the coffee fruit and finally the bean.
A black pot for black coffee
Part of the name of our coffee is the word "Jebena" – the name of a traditional black clay coffee pot which is still used today in Ethiopia, Eritrea and the Sudan. It is characterized by its spherical belly and long, thin, curved pourer. The round shape means that the bubbles of steam are evenly distributed during boiling, which helps to bring out the full aromas of the coffee. It's a little miracle that the flavor of our Caffè Jebena Yirga also develops fully in the cubic Qbo capsules.
A little growing region, a great experience
Yirga is a relatively small growing region in which a very rare, expressive, strong coffee is produced. This is a coffee that is one of the best in Africa and can bear comparison with the world's most expensive coffees in terms of flavor. The first-class quality is also due to the altitudes at which the coffee beans grow much more slowly, allowing a particularly fine flavor to develop.
