Named for Ethiopia’s national tree, Ally’s Acacia Core Coffee comes from smallholder farmers in the Guji region of Ethiopia. The sweet, fruity profile of Ethiopia Acacia Natural is selected to represent the classic flavors of some of Ethiopia’s best recognized coffee producing regions. Our Core Coffees reflect the work of whole communities, and the Ethiopia Acacia Natural is produced by the smallholder farmers who characterize the coffee production landscape of Ethiopia.
In these southern regions of Ethiopia farmers pick coffee selectively, harvesting only ripe cherries individually by hand. Pickers rotate among the trees every eight to ten days, choosing only the cherries which are at peak ripeness. Natural processed coffee is transferred directly to raised drying beds. The ripe cherries are turned constantly as they dry in the sun.
