About this coffee :

Kochere is southwest of the town of Yirgacheffe and near a little village of Ch’elelek’tu. Kochere coffees have a strong fruit tea–like note that comes along with the citrus and stone fruit. When this is combined with processing as a natural, the result is expressive & vibrant aromatics of coffee!

Processing, of course, also plays a significant part in what makes Ethiopian coffees distinct—both distinctly Ethiopian, as well as distinct from one another, washed or natural.

To create a natural coffee, cherry is picked at optimal ripeness and brought to the washing station by surrounding local farmers. The small surrounding farms where the coffee is grown are farming on red clay soil, which is rich in minerals such as aluminium and iron.

Tree cover is typically provided by Wanza, Birbirra and Acacia. The cherry is then spread out and sun dried on raised beds to allow air to circulate both above and below the coffee allowing an even drying on the beans. This takes 15 days before the dried cherries are then taken for milling in Yirgacheffe itself.

This is a must try for all Ethiopian coffee fans. Super vibrant fruitiness of apricot & peach aromatics, maple sweetness with ginger flower floral finish. A lovely coffee to enjoy in a hot day.
