Pick up the last of this lot of our Core Coffee offering, Ethiopia Acacia Natural, in this 29 lb box!
Named for Ethiopia’s national tree, Ally’s Acacia Core Coffee comes from smallholder farmers in the Guji region of Ethiopia. The sweet, fruity profile of Ethiopia Acacia Natural is selected to represent the classic flavors of some of Ethiopia’s best recognized coffee producing regions. Our Core Coffees reflect the work of whole communities, and the Ethiopia Acacia Natural is produced by the smallholder farmers who characterize the coffee production landscape of Ethiopia.
In these southern regions of Ethiopia farmers pick coffee selectively, harvesting only ripe cherries individually by hand. Pickers rotate among the trees every eight to ten days, choosing only the cherries which are at peak ripeness. Natural processed coffee is transferred directly to raised drying beds. The ripe cherries are turned constantly as they dry in the sun.
Acacia is prepped for export at Tracon Trading’s coffee cleaning and storage plant on 30,000 sq meters of land in Addis Ababa. The plant is equipped with modern Pinhalense coffee processing machines and a Buhler Z+ color sorter. The machine has the capacity of processing six tons per hour. All the processing jobs are mechanical and electronic including final hand picking on conveyor belts. The six storage silos of the plant have a capacity of accommodating about 15,000 metric tons of coffee at a time. The warehouses are clean, with ample lighting and ventilation, which are ideal for keeping the quality of the coffee.
