Halo Hartume is a community near the border between Gedeb and Kochere, two coffee growing districts in Ethiopia’s coveted Gedeo Zone. Gedeo, named after the Gedeo people indigenous to the area, is a narrow section of highland plateau dense with savvy farmers and fiercely competitive processors whose coffee is known the world over as “Yirgacheffe”, the zone’s most famous district and central town. This particular coffee comes from a family-run independent washing station in Halo Hartume whose contributing farmers number almost 400, and farm sizes range from 1 to 10 hectares.
As a terroir, Yirgacheffe has for decades been considered a benchmark for beauty and complexity in arabica coffee. This coffee is no exception. It’s big and sweet, with layers of grapefruit, peach and floral aromas.
Cup Profile: clean, bright acidity, citrus - washed process - medium roast.
