Kore, the village where this coffee is grown and processed in the Kochere district within Yirgacheffe is about 25 kilometers from the center of Yirgacheffe Town. Kochere coffees have a strong fruit tea–like note that comes along with the citrus and stone fruit. When this is combined with processing as a Natural, the result is expressed as red currant, lime, and raspberry lemonade.

The coffee is picked and delivered to the Boji Washing Station, depulped within 12 hours, and washed using spring water. The soils in this region are red-brown clay soil, about 1.5 meters deep.

Coffees in Ethiopia are typically traceable to the washing station level, where smallholder farmers—many of whom own less than 1/2 hectare of land, and as little as 1/8 hectare on average—deliver cherry by weight to receive payment at a market rate. The coffee is sorted and processed into lots without retaining information about whose coffee harvest is in which bag or which lot
