Ethiopia Kochore


Following the quick run of Chelelektu, we are rolling out another Ethiopian coffee for those Yirgacheffe lovers.

This lot comes from a washing station in the Kore village, situated in the Kochore woreda (district), south of Yirgacheffe town. There are many private and cooperative stations in this area and as one of the official designations of the Ethiopian Commodities Exchange, many coffees can be sold as Kochore/Kochere .This coffee is from one washing station very close to the main commercial town of Chelelektu. The station buys coffee cherry at prices that ranged from 11 to 15 birr per kg of cherry in the past season, quite a lot more than other zones in Ethiopia where farmers are paid as little as 5 birr. Coffees in this area are grown at very high altitudes with many farms above 2000 meters. The coffee is delivered down from these high altitudes to the washing station where it is traditionally wet-processed and laid to dry on raised beds.

Carrying the characteristics of Yirgacheffe coffee, this Kochore is blooming with floral notes. Bouquet of lavender and jasmine aromatics invites you to savour this honeyed lemon and peach tea concoction slowly and enjoy the candy sweetness as it cools.
