This is our fourth year buying this zero-defect washed coffee from Kochere, Ethiopia–and it’s the best Ethiopian coffee we’ve ever roasted. Very light in body, but big on flavor. Bright citrus notes, balanced by a delicate, floral sweetness. We taste hints of vanilla and peach in there too. African coffee fans should love this coffee, but it’s exceptional balance makes it a good candidate for anyone who likes fruit forward/floral style coffees. And if you’ve never tried a lighter coffee, this is a great place to start.
This coffee comes from one of the most well-known growing regions in the world--where unique coffees, terroir and growing conditions create some of the most exciting coffees in Africa. Our producer elevates this coffee to new heights by relentlessly sorting and managing to remove all defects--no easy feat. That ensures that not only do you get heirloom beans from coffee's homeland, but an extremely delicate, clean cup as well.
de Fer is located in Pittsburgh, and we are so excited to be working with this great team!
