Albeit being known for producing tantalizing specialty grade coffees, Ethiopian coffee producers are still looking to step up their game. This results in even more meticulous processing where heirlooms coffees are triple sorted by size, colour, and density until it was nearly defect-free, which is referred to as "zero defect" - the YirgZ. 

Keffa's Zero Defect Sorting, which takes three times as long as other coffees from the region, improves cup clarity and emphasizes the aroma of black tea, peach sweetness, and grapefruit acidity. On top of that, the mill pays its employees generously for manually sorting the coffee seeds.

Apart from the classic Yirgacheffe citrusy notes, expect to enjoy a clean cup without defective taints!

At The Crackpots Coffee Roaster, we always try to help beginners and advanced drinkers alike to understand more about coffees. One of our efforts is to explain the various cryptic names of coffees which could be confusing.

Here’s a breakdown of this coffee:


Officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, is a country in the Horn of Africa.

Ethiopia is said to be where all coffees come from, and coffee production in Ethiopia is a longstanding tradition which dates back dozens of centuries.


Yirgacheffe is a part of Sidama region, but gained recognition as a microregion itself for its outstanding coffee farming and processing practices that are valued highly all over the world. 


'Yirg' stands for Yirgacheffe, 'Z' for Zero Defect.

Slow Dry Washed

Washed process is when coffee skins, flesh and mucilage are stripped from the fruit within days of the coffee cherry being plucked from the tree and washed with water before drying. This removes any impurities and makes the coffee taste cleaner. 

After that, the coffee is dried on patios at a way slower rate to ensure each of the seeds are dried evenly.


Grade 1 - Ethiopian coffees are graded from 1 to 9. Grade 1-2 are considered specialty grades, Grade 3-9 are considered "commercial".
