STORY BEHIND THE CUP
This lot consists of coffees grown in the 'kebele' (town or village) of Anosoro, located in the 'woreda' (administrative district) of Shakiso in Ethiopia's Guji Zone. The coffee was processed at Gemeda Elias Washing Station, which is run by Tracon Trading. The exporting company, owned by the Gemeda Elias family, also oversees quality control at the washing station and prepares the parchment for export at a state-of-the-art dry mill facility in Addis Ababa. Mr. Gemeda Elias, a successful CoE-winning coffee grower, owns the washing station and works closely with Tracon to produce both washed and natural coffees.
During the harvest season, freshly picked coffee cherries are delivered daily by approximately 850 local coffee growers. The washing station manager, Gemeda Abdi, closely oversees the processing of these cherries. The majority of families who contributed to this batch grow coffee organically on small plots of land, averaging just 2.6 hectares. Coffee is their primary cash crop, growing alongside food crops such as corn, grain, and bananas, under the shade of native Birbira, Wanza, and Acacia trees. The average elevation of farms in this region is quite high, ranging from 1,900 to 2,100 meters above sea level. Together with the cool temperatures of the area, this creates optimal conditions for slow ripening of the coffee cherries, resulting in denser beans and a distinctly sweet and complex cup profile.
