Roughly 750 small growers from the Biloya Co-op produce our Ethiopia Washed Kochere Q GR2. The growers are from the Chelelektu village (or “kebele”) where each manages their own small acreage plot. Wet milling is performed at the Legesse Kebede Wash Station, which keeps a close eye on sustainable farming practices as part of their overall strategy. This Ethiopia Washed Kochere is a Q2 grade. It cups with a medium body, high acidity and sweet notes of lemon-citrus.
The Biloya Co-op that produces this Ethiopia Washed Kochere has a total of about 1200 members whose farms range in altitude from 1600 – 2500 meters. They manage two separate centrally-located processing mills just a few kilometers from the main roads and 45 kilometers from Kebele Dilla, which is the administrative center of the Gedeo Zone and has been a major marketing center for the coffee trade since the 1970s. The Biloya Co-op is part of the larger Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperatives Union (YCFCU), which it joined back in 2002.
