Ethiopia Gedeo Zone, Yirgacheffe KOKE (pronounced Ko-Kay) Gr 2
Varietal: Heirloom Yirgacheffe type
Fully washed, sun dried on raised beds & hand sorted
The Yirgacheffe region is known for unique flavor profiles, but coffee from the Koke washing station is extra special. Koke is a small district in the Yirgacheffe region with elevations as high as 2300M, allowing for concentrated sweetness and complex flavours. Koke lots are highly sought after by the Japanese and Korean coffee community with limited bags making it to North America, we are very excited to have this lot back at our warehouse.
If you're a micro-roaster who wishes to be recognized for having a lot that is unique, rare and competition ready, book a few bags before its gone.
