Rob Says: Remarkable that 3 from the first 5 lots of Ethiopia this season come from Kochere, Yirgacheffe. It seems that the climate has been ideal last year.
How does it works, a ‘perfect’ season: it starts with high temperature in front of the raining season and then the right amount of rain – a lot please. This gives perfect flowering and is the start of a good juicy crop. Between late October and mid January the harvest can take place for the 850 farmers who bring their cherry to the Reko Washing Station.
WE EXPECT THIS LOT OF REKO TO LAND BY MID JULY
