ETHIOPIA // KOCHER
This variant is currently sold out
Grown without the use of chemical fertilizers (like most coffee in Ethiopia), this coffee is organic regardless of having no certification. It's a luscious and complex heirloom coffee which, for us stood out amongst the best coffees from this years crop. The Kochere district is a few kilometers south of Yirgacheffe in the Gedeo Zone. Coffees from this region are world renown and without a doubt some of the best we've ever tasted.
- Farmers deliver cherry to local wet mills. Some wet mills pay a premium for better quality cherry, some do not.
- Coffees are labeled with a region and then are graded based both on physical qualities as well as cup quality. Higher quality coffee fetches a higher price. (this one is grade 1, which is the best)
- Coffee is categorized into 81 generic grades of coffee at the ECX: Processing: Washed, Un-washed, Region: Yirgacheffe, Sidama, Limu, etc. Flavor: A (Representative of region's cup characteristics) B (Less so), Grade: 1-9 (defect count)
- Tracibility on the coffee an exporter purchases coffee through the ECX will, at most, be labelled as “Yirgacheffe: Konga” or “Sidama: Borena.”
