Kochere is a small area within the well-known Yirgacheffe coffee-growing region of Ethiopia. Located in southern Ethiopia, Kochere is just south of the town of Yirgacheffe. This area contains washing stations where local farmers can bring their coffee for processing after it is harvested. The iron-rich acidic soil and high altitude of the region are ideal for growing specialty coffee and the Kochere district is known for producing some of the most lively Yirgacheffe coffees in the region.
