About the bean

We debuted this fabulous coffee at the beginning of spring and we're thrilled to celebrate the move into fall with another crop of this instant classic.

The Kochere is a perfect coffee pairing for fall with its jammy fruit flavours and pleasant, well-balanced brightness. This new batch lives up to the glory of its spring introduction: go get, coffee lovers!

A new favourite.

Taste Test

This is a light to medium-light dream. As an American roast profile brewed in a Hario V60 (pour over), we enjoyed a wonderfully bright cup buoyed with an orange marmalade tartness, offset with a honey softness. Notes of orange zest and strawberry gave this deliciously flavorful brew a lovely aftertaste. Smooth to taste with a light-medium body. A perfect coffee to start the day on - happy in, happy out.

Brewed in a French press as a City roast, the Kochere's vibrant sweetness at this profile popped. Notes of apricot and white chocolate produced a more mellow cup with a velvet finish. Going darker to Full City, the Kochere took on a smokey, molasses flavour - we preferred lighter. As a Full City roast profile made into a latte, the result was delightful: candied notes of fruit and chocolate, sweet and winning.


Roast recommendation: Stay below a Full City profile and reap the rewards. Go darker for specialty drinks like lattes. For an explanation of our different roasts, see here: http://greenbeanery.ca/pages/roasting-chart.
