Origin: Small landholders local to Kochere, Yirgacheffe, Gedeo Zone, SNNPR, Ethiopia
Fresh crop Ethiopia is here! We’re starting our sourcing season with the perennial favorite, “Yirg Z.” This microlot is sorted for defect-free, ripe cherry to three-times the stringent Grade-1 standard, resulting in an exceptionally clean cup. Kochere is one of our favorite coffee terroirs on earth, cups generally displaying juicy stone fruit, florals, and black tea sweetness. In this lot we’re finding flavors of sweet tea, jasmine, and honeydew melon in a bright, aromatic cup.
