Notes from our Importer

Kore is the village, or kebele, where this coffee is grown and processed, in the Kochere "district" or woreda within Yirgacheffe. Kore is about 25 kilometers from the center of Yirgacheffe Town. Kochere is southwest of the town of Yirgacheffe and near a little village of Ch'elelek'tu. Kochere coffees have a strong fruit tea-like note that comes along with the citrus and stone fruit. The coffee is picked and delivered to the Boji washing station, depulped within 12 hours, and washed using spring water. The soils in this region are red-brown clay soil, about 1.5 meters deep.

Coffees in Ethiopia are typically grown on very small plots of land by farmers who also grow other crops. The majority of smallholders will deliver their coffee in cherry to a nearby washing station or central processing unit, where their coffee will be sorted, weighed, and paid for or given a receipt. Coffee is then processed, usually washed or natural, by the washing station and dried on raised beds.

The washing stations serve as many as several hundred to sometimes a thousand or more producers, who deliver cherry throughout the harvest season: The blending of these cherries into day lots makes it virtually impossible under normal circumstances to know precisely whose coffee winds up in which bags on what day, making traceability to the producer difficult. We do, however, make every available effort to source coffee from the same washing stations every year, through our export partners and their connections with mills and washing stations.

Typically farmers in this region don't have access to and therefore do not utilize fertilizers or pesticides in the production of coffee.
