Koke Station

Ally has a long-standing relationship with the family-owned Koke washing station, which was built in 2011 and has seen many improvements since 2015, when the washing station staff began providing guidance to contributing producers regarding steps to increase coffee quality.

The Koke station stands on the side of a hill, with coffee grown above and below the station. For the last three years, the Koke station managers have been separating out the higher elevation cherries for Ally, and the quality clearly shows. 96 small scale farmers provided cherries to Koke this harvest most of them multigenerational family farmers. Producers plant maize and enset food crops as well as coffee, with Biribira, Acacia, and Cordia Africana used as shade trees. Temperatures in the area range from 11.38⁰C to 25.57⁰C and annual rainfall is 1525 mm.
