Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Kochere

Profile

Our first new crop arrival of the year from Ethiopia! Kochere is an area southwest of the town of Yirga Cheffe, which is located in southern Ethiopia’s Gedeo zone. This coffee is meticulously sorted three different ways. The methods include screen sizing, color sorting and hand sorting. Called “YirgZ” by our supplier, this refers to its grading as a “zero” defect coffee. A group of women are paid three times the average wage as an incentive for the attention to detail needed for hand sorting of this coffee.

The soil in this region is heavy in volcanic nutrients and clay minerals. It is fertilized in part through recycling of organic material, including fallen or pruned leaves, sticks and branches as well as root residue from Ensete trees. Similar to a banana tree, the Ensete tree not only provides shade but, it is also the primary root crop of Ethiopia. The rich soils of this growing region paired with the intense sorting process, produce vibrant aromatics and clean floral and fruit flavors in the cup.

Cupping notes

Soft, tea-like character with subtle notes of peach, flowers and honeydew melon.
