Tamrat Adebe, Lot 15 – Ethiopia – Gardelli – Espresso and Filter
Tamrat Adebe, Lot 15 – Ethiopia – Gardelli – Espresso and Filter – We are honoured to feature this great natural coffee from Yirgacheffe terroir.
This lot is produced by a single farmer named Tamrat Adebe who brought the coffee cherries to the nearest Tracon process station.
Coffee in Ethiopia typically follows one of two paths: estate coffee or collective lots. The easier to understand (but much rarer to encounter) is the path of estate coffee that is grown and sold under the name of the estate. The supply chain for Ethiopian estate coffees is similar in large part to the supply chain in Central America in that farms are owned either by wealthier Ethiopian nationals or by Ethiopian nationals in partnership with international investors. Just like any farm in Central or South America, these farms employ pickers and processors at market rates.
Tracon has established modern coffee cleaning and storage plant in 30,000 sq meters of land. The plant is equipped with modern PINHALENSE coffee processing machines and Buhler Z+ color sorter. The machine has the capacity of processing 6 tons per hour. All the processing jobs are mechanical and electronic including final hand picking on conveyor belts. The six stores of the plant have a capacity of accommodating about 15,000 metric tons of coffee at a time. The warehouses are clean, with enough lighting, and ventilation system, which are very ideal for keeping the quality of the coffee.
