Background Details

This coffee is sourced from family-owned farms in the Kochere district of the Gedeo region of Ethiopia. The Gedeo region is named after the Gedeo people who are indigenous to this area. The Kochere micro-region has long been known as one of the best origins for southern Ethiopian coffee. The combination of very high altitude and iron-rich, acidic soil creates the ideal growing situation to produce the bright, floral Yirgacheffe profile.
