Kochere is a small area within the wellknown Yirgacheffe coffee-growing region of Ethiopia. Located in the SNNPR (Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples’ Region) of southern Ethiopia, Kochere is just south of the town of Yirgacheffe and is 250 miles southwest of Addis Ababa. The 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.
