Ethiopia Halo Beriti
This variant is currently sold out
Halo Beriti is a washing station situated in the highlands of Gadeb, Yirgacheffe. The station serves a community of 750 smallholder producers, who deliver their coffee in cherry form.
This traditional village style of farming is typical of Ethiopia, where most farmers own less than 1/2 hectare of land, where they grow commodities as a collective community. The heirloom varieties grown throughout Ethiopia are truly unique and diverse.
This lot is a fine example of washed, or parchment dried, Ethiopian heirloom coffee. It all starts with the heirloom DNA itself, coffee in its biological birthplace, evolving over millennia. Then there's the terroir, super fertile, super high altitude, where coffee fruit matures slowly, creating a densely sweet seed. Each and every plant is cared for by hand, and cherries are picked only when ripe. At the washing station, the cherry is sorted, pulped, fermented, washed, and dried with care.
Then we grab hold of it and roast it gently to develop its inherent sweetness and bring out all the lovely flavors those before us worked hard to develop and preserve. You'll find flavors of jasmine, apricot, caramel, toffee, chocolate, and lime. The body is dense and coating with a long finish.
This is a only around for a short time!
