There's no (if not official-- "agreed upon") roasting terminology guide on Coffee Geek? That surprises me.

Is there anything more condensed than this?

A quick look tells me that both Klatch and Paradise roasters have Yirgacheffe medium roasted.  Both are excellent roasters in my experience.  Give one or both a try.

Two recommendations for Paradise got them an order. I'll let you know what I think.

I went into Panther Coffee this afternoon on my way home from work... and Joel Pollock was just finishing roasting some Ethiopia Yirgacheffe, we talked a bit about it and my experiences with other coffees I've gotten from Joel and I decided to give it a go.

My expectations are high, there hasn't been anything that I've brewed from Panther that hasn't been exceptional, so by the weekend, this should be good to give it a try.

I'll report back then!

I got my shipment from Paradise Coffee today, along with an unexpected and delightful personal, hand-signed letter from Brian Foster. Suitable for framing, this is customer service, redefined.

I tossed the leftover African Blend into the compost and proceeded to give my Preciso a GRINDZ treatment. I ground about 45g at setting G20 with 36 oz of water-- I raided my stash of dew that was painstakingly collected from the leaves of silver sword plants by virgins, who were subsequently sacrificed in the Haleakala volcano. And yes, I used my basic Cuisinart (sorry!) to make 1/2 a pot of coffee. I just finished my first cup, and it seems like all the problems in the world just got a little less important. Excuse me while I go get another.

I'm glad you liked your coffee.  That description is awesome, by the way.  I wish we could put it on the bags.  Until then, it is hanging on the wall at the roastery.

My very first lb of Yirg was delivered yesterday. Had my firs cup this morning and it was awesome! Brewed with my Bonavita.
Question: thinking of grinding the Yirg for an espresso. Has anyone tried this? Just wondering....

Absolutely.  I love Yirg shots.  Ours is a very light roast compared to even a light espresso, and not marketed as an espresso, but when we have extra I usually pull a few shots.

The flavor profile changes quite a bit compared to an auto-drip or pourover, but light Yirgacheffes can make a beautiful, fruity espresso.  It can pack some pucker, but it's totally worth a try.
