Worka Chelbesa is Canyon's premier coffee from the well-known Yirgacheffe coffee-growing region of Ethiopia. Yirgacheffe is often credited as being the "birthplace" of coffee, and the coffee grown there is notable for its clear and fragrant floral notes. Canyon's roast delivers notes of persimmon, lime, and bergamot.
The beans were grown and harvested around the Worka Chelbesa community, which sits between 1900 - 2200 meters above sea level (MASL). Worka Chelbesa is located in the Gedeb District, which in turn is part of the larger Gedeo Zone. Coffees from the Gedeo Zone are collectively referred to as Yirgacheffe—even though Yirgacheffe is also a town and a district within the Gedeo Zone.
