    Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Kochere Coffee

    Kochere is a small area within the well-known Yirgacheffe coffee-growing region of Ethiopia. Located in the SNNPR (Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region) of southern Ethiopia, Kochere is just south of the town of Yirgacheffe and is 250 miles southwest of Addis Ababa. The area contains washing stations where local farmers can bring their coffee for processing after it is harvested. The iron-rich acidic soil and high altitude of the region are ideal for growing specialty coffee and the Kochere district is known for producing some of the most lively Yirgacheffe coffees in the region. The Kochere Yirgacheffe is noted for its distinctive floral notes.

    Fine Ground: At a fine grind, coffee should be soft to the touch – slightly finer than granulated sugar.

    Espresso: Great espresso requires skill, patience and quality equipment. Without these things, and a proper grind, espresso can be thin and weak or over extracted and clog in the portafilter. The perfect grind is essential to reaching espresso nirvana; an intensely rich and creamy extraction with thick crema and well rounded flavor.
    Grind: Fine/Very Fine

    Aeropress: The Aeropress is a quick and efficient way to make flavorful, rich coffee with low acidity and bitterness. With specially designed micro-filter technology the Aeropress consistently provides some of the best coffee in just under 20 seconds.
    Grind: Fine/Medium

    Medium Ground: At a medium grind, coffee should be gritty like sand with no considerably large pieces.

    Auto Drip Pot: The Auto Drip style coffee maker is an efficient and hassle-free way to make a fresh pot. With the correct grind and water to coffee ratio, it IS possible to get a great cup of coffee using this method.
    Grind: Medium

    Chemex: The Chemex is an elegant brewing device that extracts only the purest, most flavorful coffee without any bitterness or sediment. Because of the incredible functionality and design, the Chemex, paired with Chemex Bonded Filters, create a pure coffee experience unlike any other.
    Grind: Medium/Coarse

    Coarse Ground: At a coarse grind, coffee is separated into large fragments similar to grained kosher salt.

    French Press: The French Press is a classic and easy way to prepare decadent and smooth coffee and can easily be converted to brew cold coffee. The coffee grounds and water are separated by a fine mesh plunger leaving only fresh brewed coffee after 5 short minutes.
    Grind: Coarse

    Toddy Cold Brew: The Toddy Cold Brew system is a simple and consistent way to extract a delicious and low-acid brew. Oils and fatty acids that would normally settle into hot coffee are eliminated leaving you with a perfectly balanced and smooth cup of iced coffee.
    Grind: Coarse

    Not my favorite Ethiopian


    Not a bad coffee but I favor the taste and potency of Ethiopian Natural Sidamo - Organic Fair Trade

    I've been drinking this coffee every day for 3 years


    I love it and it never disappoints. FRC is a great company and I've been happy with them for years.

    Consistently Great Coffee


    As the title says -- consistently great coffee, whether you get the whole bean or ground - fresh, consistent great flavor! Ethiopian Yirgacheffe is my favorite coffee and, so far, Fresh Roasted Coffee does it best!

    Will not disappoint


    I've ordered the Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Kochere before and enjoyed it. This order did not disappoint! I don't know about all those flowery terms for coffee, I just know that this is great tasting coffee!


    Tasty, but not as bright as one would expect


    Bright and clean. A bit more chocolate and not quite as "red cherry" like as one would expect from Yirgacheffe. Clean. Roast is a little light, even for city roast. If you're sensitive to caffeine, watch this one--it's got a kick. It make a very enjoyable cold brew; we did Nitrogenate it; not sure that added much.
