Flavor Notes: Dried strawberry, lemon, jasmine, chamomile
The Kochere region, located close to the legendary coffee town of Yirgacheffe, is known for producing some of the finest coffee in the world. The indigenous ‘heirloom’ varietals, grown wild in the area, are one of the contributing factors to making it so desirable. That, combined with extremely high growing altitudes (some of the highest in the world!) incredibly fertile soil, and an abundance of local knowledge contribute to make Kochere region coffees truly stand out.
This particular coffee, a high scoring, fully washed coffee, comes from the Chelelektu Wet Mill, which processes coffee cherries from over 600 local smallholder farmers. Small scale coffee producers bring their harvest to the mill where it is then washed, graded by bean density, and lastly dried in the sun on raised African beds before being shipped out.
Characterized by strawberry, lemon, and jasmine tea-like notes, this is a beautiful summertime cup. We encourage you to try it as both a hot morning cup as well as a refreshing mid-day cold brew coffee. Be sure to check out our video on how to make a shaken cold brew coffee—a creamy, sweet summertime treat. Enjoy!
