This coffee is grown at an altitude of 2000 – 2200 meters above sea level. It undergoes a fully washed process and is dried on raised beds. Harvest season is from October – January.
This coffee comes from lots near the Halo Hartume and Worka Sakaro washing stations which are located in the Gedeb district. The coffee is sourced from 410 farmers who cultivate coffee on small plots and they deliver their cherry to the Worka Haro washing station. Once the cherries arrive at the washing station, they are carefully hand sorted and floated to separate less dense beans. Afterwards, they are depulped and fermented for 48 hours then washed and classified again in channels. The parchment is placed on raised beds where it is hand sorted again and dried for 12 – 15 days. Mijane Woresa and his sons supply these beans and emphasize social impact in these coffee growing communities. In order to reduce transportation costs for small producers, they invested in more localized cherry collection sites. They have also contributed to road construction projects to make travel easier, invested in school infrastructure projects and provided children with equipment to play sports.
