Like most coffee in Ethiopia, this selection is grown on small family farms averaging only about a third of an acre. After harvesting their coffee cherries, the farmers take them to a central washing station where crops from neighboring farms are blended together into larger lots for processing. The final product is then usually identified by the name of the washing station.
The Boji washing station serves around 500 small farms near Kore, a village in the Kochere district of the famed coffee growing region Yirgacheffe. Kochere coffees are well known for elegant tea–like notes with pronounced citrus and stone fruit tones.
