About Ethiopia: The Birthplace of Arabica coffee. Coffee from Ethiopia is very unique and considered a fantastic speciality coffee, offering a range of flavours from wine tastes to fruit flavours. Ethiopian Yirgacheffee is soft, with floral tones.
It's been said that Ethiopians keep the best beans for themselves but luckily we can get hold what is known as the worlds most unique and delicious specialty coffee.
Yirgacheffe coffee is Fruity and acidic with notes of blackcurrant and rhubarb. Low body and medium sweetness making it a very easy coffee to drink. The YCFU (Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union) holds the best organic coffee produced by small batch farmers. The traditional Ethiopian coffee cultivation practices are still dominant among the Yirgacheffe farmers. Coffee trees are managed by hand and fertilized with organic matter.
Brewing Methods: The aroma of these beans are unforgettable. Enjoy as an espresso, however filter processes such as Aeropress or V90 are also highly recommended. Steam milk to no more than 55 degrees for a flat white, latte or cappuccino to balance the sugars and prevent the milk from splitting.

To date our Head Barista Aron has made over a million of coffees during his time, that’s a lot right? His dedication and skill has benefited coffee shops around the E.U., Canada, New York & his home city London. In 2010 Aron started with a mobile espresso van which taught him just how difficult it can be to manage different bean densities in England’s inclement weather. Determined to master the art of consistency, he spent days testing coffees from around the world, roasting different blends to formulate a recipe that would deliver a consistent base flavour within a temperature range of -5’c to 35’c. Most coffee shops are fitted with air conditioning units which assist in maintaining that consistency, but without that luxury Aron’s understanding of the volatility of coffee grew considerably.
The business expanded in 2011 when both Aron and his wife, Clare, took on a failing coffee shop after the recession with aim to give it life. With previous experience in hospitality and business management, their dedication and hard graft paid off and The Espresso Lounge Tring is a successful coffee shop and cafe with several TripAdvisor awards and fantastic reviews.
They remain within this lucrative industry to date and can offer invaluable knowledge to new business start ups or those wishing to train their baristas to the highest possible standard. Barista equipment, coffee machines, sales training and business consultancy are all available through Barista Life and can set your business on the path to success.
