Ethiopia Kochere

The Pacific Northwest’s Original Craft Coffee Roaster



Think: strawberry, jasmine, and lemon zest

This exceptional coffee was grown by smallholder farmers living in Gedeo County of the Yirgacheffe region. Most contributing farmers own less than a hectare of land, and they grow coffee simply as a backyard cash crop. Coffee will usually be interspersed with other subsistence crops, such as sweet potato, mangos and avocados. Varieties of coffee grown are usually interpreted to be ‘heirloom,’ as very little renovation takes place, and farmers simply inherit the trees of their parents. Coffee cherries are selectively hand-picked before being delivered to collection points, usually within 10 kilometers of the producers’ homes. Great care is taken upon delivery to separate out any overripe, underripe, or damaged beans before consolidating with other lots. In the cup, we taste notes of mixed berries, jasmine, and lemon zest.
