Yirgacheffe | Heirloom | 1850-2100 masl | Washed

Reko is a gorgeous version of a classic Yirgacheffe coffee. The body is delicate and somewhat tealike. The brew is sweet and aromatic with notes of pineapple, lime, cantaloupe, pear, and muscovado sugar. 

Reko washing station is named after Reko mountain, a tall skinny mountain that towers above the hills of Kochere. Reko, translates to “challenge”. It refers to the challenge of climbing Reko mountain, as well as the goal of producing some of the best coffee in the region. During harvest, about 850 farmers bring their cherries to the washing station. Incoming coffee is washed with water from the local river, before pulping. The mucilage is removed by traditional fermentation, which lasts 36-48 hours depending on weather conditions. The coffee is then dried on raised beds for 10-12 days.
