Farmlevel Story

We’re excited to bring back this longtime Verve favorite and consistent crowd-pleaser to our coffee line-up. This coffee comes from Chelchele, which is in the kebele (village) of Chelchele in the woreda (district) of Kochere, in the Yirgacheffe region. Yirgacheffe is filled with lush forests, offering perfect conditions for developing nuanced notes in Arabica coffee. Ethiopian coffees offer incredible diversity of flavor and character, specifically within these regions whose names alone correlate to the finest coffees in the world. We find that this coffee has a classic washed Ethiopian profile, which is what makes Ethiopian coffees so unique and distinctive. The smallholders who produced this coffee wash the cherries in co-op-owned washing stations and export directly, allowing for the separation of top coffee lots, higher prices for farmers, and increased recognition for the best quality coffees in Ethiopia.
