Borona Korie has intense honey and lime aromatics, with accent notes of raisin, brown sugar, cinnamon, rose hips, and essence of orange in the cup. Interesting mint-lemonade flavor too. City to Full City.
This Yirga Cheffe lot comes from a washing station in the Kochore region, a smaller sub-region Korie. We purchased this lot directly from the station manager, who has a small handful of private washing stations in the Kochore and Chele'lektu sub-regions. Private and cooperative stations abound, and as one of the official designations of the Ethiopia Coffee Exchange, many coffees can be sold as Kochore/Kochere. We've visited a few of his washing stations in the past couple years, and were impressed at the prices they are paying for KG of coffee cherry - much higher than most other zones, more-than double in some cases. 650 farmers deliver tho this particular station. The high price paid up front upon delivery is very attractive to the locals, affording access to much of the sought after coffees in the highest elevations, most members in the 1900 - 2000 meters range. We were happy to secure a small amount of this coffee, 41 bags.
