Yirgacheffe is a micro region sitting at the heart of the larger Sidamo region. It takes around five hours to drive from Addis Ababa to Yirgacheffe where the town of Kochere lays to the south-west. Kohere’s washing station is managed by the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Co-Operative Union (YCFCU) who wash and naturally process the local heirloom varietals provided by various surrounding small hold farms. All the coffees processed at the Kochere are dried on African raised beds.
