Thought to be the true origin of the coffee plant, Ethiopia has the perfect conditions for coffee growing. From tales of Kaldi and his antsy goats to the reverent tone of voice with which coffee lovers say the word “Yirgacheffe" (pronounced yer-guh-cheff), Ethiopian coffee beans conjure up pure coffee romance. Go ahead, say it. It rolls off the tongue.
Within the popular Yirgacheffe growing region of Southern Ethiopia you will find the small woreda or district called Kochere. Kochere provides communal washing stations for local farmers to process their coffee after the harvest. This African district is well known for producing high-quality Ethiopian coffee beans - where the acidic, mineral dense soil and soaring altitudes make for a perfect coffee growing micro-climate.
