Ethiopian naturally processed coffees are in a league of their own. They rise and shine like fireworks in the coffee firmament with pop tart flavor notes and cult-like followers. We spent weeks looking for this perfect “natural.”
And so here is Kochere Natural – from Tamrat Alemayehu washing station, located in the Gedeb woreda, which is part of the Yirgarcheffe zone. The tip-top cup on the table every time we tasted it. Floral, berry, red and purple. Sit back and take a sip with your eyes.
