REGION: Yirgacheffe FARM / CO-OP: Koke Washing Station ELEVATION: 1800 Meters VARIETY: Kurume, Dega, Wolisho TASTING NOTES: Brown Sugar, Black Tea, Citrus ROAST LEVEL: Light/City
The Koke washing station is named for the Koke kebele, or town, where it is located in the Yirgacheffe district of the Gedeo Zone.
The station stands on the side of a hill, with coffee grown above and below the station. For the last five years, the Koke station managers have been separating out the higher elevation cherries for Ally, and the quality clearly shows. 96 small-scale farmers provided cherries to Koke this harvest most of them multi-generational family farmers.
We roast on Mondays and Thursdays and ship the next day. All orders placed on Monday or Thursday after 9:00 am will be shipped after the next roast day.
Always a pleasure drinking coffee from First Ascent. They are the best!!
Unpronounceable but sure tatses good
Looovvvee this roast! Such a light, lovely flavor. Brewed an aeropress for first cup and have a cold brew concentrate on the way. As a cold brew this is going to be next level good I can feel it. Highly recommend it!
I love the Ethiopia Washed! A great way to start the day!
It’s The Bean
The Ethiopian is my favorite bean. Have the instant expedition pack also. 1-1/2 teaspoons per 8 ounce cup is about right.
One of my husband's favorite whole bean coffees *ever*. Delighted to support this hard-working local business with such friendly and amazing customer service.
If you’re a light roast Coffee lover like myself I highly recommend this coffee!!
