ETHIOPIA - KOCHERE


Regular price $18.00

It's 850 C.E. and a goat-herder named Kaldi (or Khalid) is in the mountains of the Yirgacheffe region and he notices his goats nibbling on the berries of a small plant. They're mood noticeably changes and so he tries this cherry for himself. Ecstatic about his discovery, he runs to town yelling, "Kokayi! Kokayi!", literally meaning, "Summon the people!". Unfortunately, the Sufi priest did not approve and he threw the cherries in the fire. But then as the fire grew, the people enticed became enticed by the aroma, the coffee beans were collected from the embers, and they mixed them with water. And so the cup of coffee was born!!

While the story Kaldi and his dancing goats is legend, the coffee from the Kochere sub-region of Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia is legendary. Stop by our cafe or order online some of this wonderful new naturally processed coffee today!

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.
