Ethiopian Yirgacheffe – Washed Gr. 2 – Kochere

Regular Price $7.35/Lb
Clean, sweet, and floral with some stronger tea like attributes. Works well light to dark. Lighter roasting does have some acidity giving the cup a citric edge and sweeter floral/fruit notes but will not develop the depth to the darker tones that we loved with fuller roast levels. Hints of a black tea like dark tone and a soft fruit tone will pop out especially with some setup and as the cup cools. Medium to dark roasts will mellow the brightness considerably turning the cup darker toned with a fuller body, more about the spice notes and chocolaty factor. Smooth and easy drinking in the medium roast range while still maintaining hints of exotic acidity. Dark roasts promote a smoky edged rich semi-sweet chocolaty factor with tea like spice that lingers on the tongue in the aftertaste.

Description

This coffee is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the BNT Industry and trading PLC, a coffee mill located in the Kochere district of the Gedeo Zone within the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples’ Regional State, Ethiopia.

Coffee producers deliver their ripe cherries to the BNT Industry coffee mill station where the cherries are sorted and depulped. After depulping, the beans are fermented for 36 to 48 hours and then washed. The wet beans in parchment are placed on raised drying beds in thin layers and turned every 2 to 3 hours during the first few days of the drying process. Depending on weather, the beans are dried for 12 to 15 days until the moisture in the coffee beans is reduced to 11.5 percent. Then the beans are transported to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, to be dehulled, sorted, and bagged for export.

This is a Grade 2 washed coffee from the Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia. Unlike other countries, in Ethiopia coffees are graded solely based on cup quality and number of defects, not size. Grade 1 and Grade 2 are considered “Specialty” at origin. Grade 2 washed coffees usually offer similar flavor characteristics to their G1 counterparts at a slightly more approachable price.

Tasting Notes: Clean, sweet, and floral with some stronger tea like attributes. Works well light to dark. Lighter roasting does have some acidity giving the cup a citric edge and sweeter floral/fruit notes but will not develop the depth to the darker tones that we loved with fuller roast levels. Hints of a black tea like dark tone and a soft fruit tone will pop out especially with some setup and as the cup cools.

Roasting Notes: Ethiopians are generally between 1st and 2nd crack coffees. Decently too light or dark and one loses the exotic tones and balance. Although mostly in Ethiopia, they roast coffee slowly and very dark, they also tend not to do awesome pour-overs with them. Best balance in this cup was achieved about half way between first and 2nd crack, a nice medium roast, can be tailored to personal preference.
