Tasting Notes:

This Ethiopian coffee bean is everything you want in a perfect Yirgacheffe. It is sweet and juicy like a fresh peach but also has a nice subtle blueberry sweetness. The creamy toastiness of coconut lingers on the tongue after your last sip. We decided to roast it medium to highlight the sweetness while also maintaining the complex fruited notes. This bean is the first honey-processed Ethiopian in a while and it lives up to the billing.

Koke Washing Station Coffee Production

The Koke washing station is named for the Koke kebele, or town, where it is located in the Yirgacheffe district of the Gedeo Zone. Ally has a long-standing relationship with the family-owned Koke washing station, which was built in 2011 and has seen many improvements since 2015, when the washing station staff began providing guidance to contributing producers regarding steps to increase coffee quality. The Koke station stands on the side of a hill, with coffee grown above and below the station. For the last five years, the Koke station managers have been separating out the higher elevation cherries and the quality clearly shows. 96 small-scale farmers provided cherries to Koke this harvest most of them multi-generational family farmers.

Coffee is prepared 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. Beans pass through a final hand sort on conveyor belts. The plant’s six storage silos have a capacity of roughly 15,000 metric tons. The warehouses are clean, with ample lighting and ventilation, which are ideal for maintaining the quality of the coffee.
