This coffee comes from the Chelchele washing station located in the district of Kochere, in Ethiopia’s Yirgacheffe region.
The hills of Yirgacheffe are the premier coffee region in Ethiopia and arguably the world. It is estimated that somewhere between six thousand and ten thousand varietals exist naturally in these highlands, the ancestral origin of the coffee cherry.
Among coffee-producing countries, Ethiopia holds near-legendary status not only because it’s the “birthplace” of Arabica coffee, but also because it is simply unlike every other place in the coffee world. Unlike the vast majority of coffee-growing countries, the plant was not introduced as a cash crop through colonization.
Instead, growing, processing, and drinking coffee is part of the everyday way of life, and has been for centuries, since the trees were discovered growing wild in forests and eventually cultivated for household use and commercial sale.
