As has been stated
earlier, apart from those pulping facilities located up-country, the
Company owns a 'PAUL KAACK' made coffee cleaning plant in Addis Ababa
capable of cleaning both washed and sun-dried coffee. The factory is
fitted with pre-cleaners, hulling & polishing machines, grading,
gravity separating and ' ELEXSO' made color-sorting equipment. These
have a cleaning capacity of three tons per hour or 23,000 tons per
annum. Along with the processing facilities, the Company owns
warehouses suitable for coffee with a storage capacity of over 10,000
tons at a time.
The Company, in
order to expedite the coffee transportation operation from its coffee
pulping and hulling station in the interior to Addis Ababa and then to
Djibouti port, has its own heavy-duty trucks with a leading capacity
of 40 tons at a time.
