A NOTE FROM THE ROASTER
Reko is a stunning example of how perfect coffee can be: crisp, clean, sweet, structured, and all the while having enough depth to rock your world. Get ready for notes of apricot, peach, jasmine, honey, and even some dadgum lavender. This classic Yirgacheffe is so dang nice you’ll be seein’ visions like Whoopi Goldberg in Ghost. Get your dang pottery wheel ready cause Reko’s coming up from behind you and he ain’t got a shirt on.

Toss 22 grams of Reko into the Kalita and pour 350 grams of water over it slow and steady like. The whole process should take about 3.5 minutes. If all goes well, you’re in for a beautifully clean cup with sweetness and fruit for days that will be really, really, really, really good :)


IMPORTER’S NOTES
In December 2013, during a blind cupping, we found this washed Yirgacheffe from a small washing station in the Kochere region called Reko. This coffee stood out because of its pronounced aroma of peach, mango, and other stone fruits. Reko washing station is named after Reko-Mountain, a tall and skinny mountain that towers above the hills of Kochere. Reko, translated in Afaan Oromo, means challenge. It refers to the challenge of climbing the Reko-mountain. Masreshu and Faysel adopted the name and its symbolic value. It is their challenge to cultivate the best Yirgacheffe coffee. The Reko washing station is a great example for neighboring washing stations, with their work with the farmers in pre-harvest training, intense sorting process, careful lot separation, and finally their continued support and education at the farm level insures amazing coffee year after year.
