Halo Beriti, the famous washing station located in the Yirgacheffe zone, in the southern hills of Ethiopia. Producing high quality coffee lots and doing extremely well in the Cup of Excellence, a producers competition for best coffees in the world. Not a surprise that this particular coffee was the best Ethiopian we tasted last year! We called this lot after one of the innovative founders from Halo Beriti, Mebrahtu, who also produced our current single espresso Aricha.
Why do coffees from this place taste so exceptional floral, fruity and complex? Mebrahtu select the farmers that he works with very well, who undergo a multiple day training about the standards of the cherries he is after. The better the ingredient, the better the coffee! In return Mebrahtu pays the farmers way above the market price, benefits for everyone.
The cherries for this particular micro lot are controlled, anaerobic fermented. Sounds very technical and means so much as fermented in sealed, big, blue barrels where the presence of oxygen can be controlled. When microbes consume all oxygen in the barrel, a new environment start to exist. Other microbes get room to flourish and are responsible for the creation of new flavours. For three to five days the pH and temperature are monitored before the coffee cherries are dried and the beans are taken out of their fruit skin.
We currently roast bi-weekly on Fridays. New orders will be sent out after the next roast day or earlier depending on stock.
