This coffee was one of the most popular releases we have had when we carried it last year and it sold out super fast. This year's harvest is of the same quality, but has a more pronounced grape bubblegum flavour that really makes it stand out.
The Kochere washing station is located in Gedeo within the Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia, one of the most well known coffee growing regions, and for a good reason. Like most natural process coffees from Yirgacheffe, which is high elevation and with amazingly rich soil, this coffee is just bursting with fruit notes.
That in itself isn't what makes it spectacular. It is the combination of sweetness with the clarity, elegance and complexity that makes it truly great.
It conjures up images of strawberry, grape bubblegum and black tea in our minds as we drink it. Great as either a fruity espresso or a filter coffee.
We paid $4.83/lb USD for this coffee to a local Canadian importer.
A note on roast dates:
Contrary to most coffee myths (based off old information), it's best not to use coffee that is too fresh. For espresso, we recommend using coffee between three days to four weeks old, while filter and drip coffee it's best if the beans are three weeks to twelve weeks from the date of roasting.
If you would like your coffee already rested, please let us know in the comment section of your order and we will do our best to fulfill your order with rested coffee, if we have it available. Please note that based on fluctuating order amounts, we won't always have rested coffee available at the time you order, and you are welcome to reach out to us to check on our inventory levels for rested coffee before ordering.
