ETHIOPIA KOKE | Specialty Coffee Roasted at Meron



Explore the tasting notes of a single origin specialty coffee sourced from Ethiopia freshly roasted in our coffee lab, at Meron Roastery. Here is some cool info about the coffee and the farm.


About the farm/farmer

This lot comes from the Koke Shalaye washing station in the Yirgacheffe coffee region, Gediyo area, 7 km from Yirgacheffe town. It is at an altitude of 1,972 m above sea level and is surrounded by the Fetay River. Cherries are collected from different farmers (on average 3,240 farmers). Farmers in this region commonly grow Jarc varieties on small plots of land around their home. The washing station has 300 African beds.

The washing station pays more than the market price for a kilogram of red cherries, and farmers who bring in quality cherries receive a monetary reward, ensuring an overall higher than average quality. The coffee is selectively picked by hand before being delivered to the factory’s collection points, usually within 5 km of the producers’ homes. Great care is taken in delivery to separate over-ripe, under-ripe or damaged beans before they are combined with other lots on the way to the washing station.


About the coffee

This coffee has undergone a natural processing method. After harvesting, the cherries are taken to the washing station, where they are submerged in water, and those that float are removed because they are under- or over-ripe. After sorting, the cherries are dried in the sun to a moisture content of 11%, and then they are dehulled and prepared for export.
