Tracon Washing Station

In 2021, Tracon chose to participate in Ethiopia’s second ever Cup of Excellence Auction and had 2 different coffees score an impressive placement in the top 20 of all the coffees submitted in the Ethiopia COE Auction. In 2021, a record-breaking number of entries 1,849 for any countrywide Cup of Excellence competition entered the competition to compete that particular year. Placing in the best of top 20 coffees produced in Ethiopia should speak volumes for itself.

Tracon is a family owned business who owns a total of 30 washing stations located around Ethiopia. All experimental coffees are processed at Tracon’s own washing stations. First, local farmers collect cherries from the surrounding kebele (village) of Deri Kidame and deliver to the local Washing Station. The Deri Kidame Washing Station is managed by Kenzu Ahmed. Kenzu provides oversight and management of all the experimental projects for Tracon at Deri Kidame. During the harvest season, daily operation mainly consist of providing oversight over cherry selection, post harvest production and compensation distribution directly to their local farming partners.

Carbonic Maceration

It is the prolonged fermentation which occurs within the cell structure of the coffee cherry. It consists of the chemical reaction that occurs when water mixes with the sugars present inside the cherry, causing the bacterias, yeasts and other microorganisms to break down the sugars and convert them into acids or alcohol.
