Rob Says: Back in stock again this year and it feels like it is getting better all the time.

This washed grade 1 coffee from our favourite Yirgacheffe region Kochere is a crowd pleasure. On the cupping table it gets high scores for sure, but once brewed in the cup, as espresso or filter coffee, something magical happens. Reko makes happy faces and the fan base is growing year after year.

The founder of the the washing station, Masreshu Sima, considers it his personal challenge to grow and produce the best possible Yirgacheffe coffee, and named his project Reko, which means challenge in the local Afaan Oromo language. We want to thank him big time for all the hard work and craftsmanship and hope many years may follow….
