We first had the opportunity to taste this coffee at the African Coffee Experience cupping sessions at The Cape Town Coffee Festival. As we delighted in all the wonderful flavours of the continent, brought to fruition by Origin Coffee Roasting, this coffee's cupping bowl immediately stood out.
Yirgacheffe coffees are known for the their delicate qualities, floral and tea-like aromas, and subtle hints of fruit. Natural-processed coffees on the other hand are best known for their bigger bodies and more intense sweetness. In this coffee, you may just find the perfect blend of flavour characteristics from terroir and processing.
This Kochere definitely has a lot of that body and sweetness that lovers of natural seek out, but it also has a lot of the delicate qualities of a washed Yirgacheffe. There's quite a bit in the way of floral aromatics, and the fruit flavours are mouth-watering, leaning towards tropical fruit more than the more traditional citrus flavours.
Like many of its compatriots, this coffee really shines in any sort of pour-over. We'd highly recommend you try it that way.
