PRODUCT DETAIL

Ethiopia Gera

This washed lot is made up of coffees grown and processed in the ‘kebele’ (town or village) of Gera, in the ‘woreda’ (administrative district) of Gera, in Ethiopia’s Jimma Zone. The coffee was processed at Gera Washing Station. Additionally, it is overseen by the Operations Manager, Tkelu Gebrie, who meticulously manages both washed and natural coffee lots.

The washing station is part of a 500-hectare coffee farm owned by Tracon Trading. This family-run exporting company manages quality control and operations at the estate and prepares the resulting parchment for export at an impressive dry milling facility in Addis Ababa.

This lot is made up of coffee grown at Gera Estate, along with freshly picked cherries from some 350 local coffee growers. The majority of the families who contributed to this lot farm organically on tiny plots of land, which average just 2.4 hectares in size.

Coffee is their main cash crop and grows alongside food crops of corn, grain, and bananas. It is under the shade of native Birbira, Wanza, and Acacia trees. The average elevation of the farms in this region is quite high – around 1,800–2,000m above sea level. This, combined region’s cool temperatures, is ideal for the slow ripening of coffee cherries, leading to denser beans and a sweeter, more complex cup profile.
