Naturally processed Ethiopian coffees are special in the world of "Single Origin" coffee flavors. These coffees are mellow and heavy on the palette, with a distinctively sweet, jammy flavor. That flavor comes from the processing system they have used for centuries in Ethiopia - now called the "dry" or "natural" process.
This coffee is composed of Indigenous heirloom varietals and is grown by the Halo Bariti cooperative at 1,600 – 2,300 meters above sea-level.

Ethiopia Natural Coffee Grown by the Halo Bariti Cooperative as part of the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union.
Located in the southern portion of the Gedeo Zone in Ethiopia, sits Gedeb, a prime location for cultivating coffee. Depending on the altitude at which coffee is grown (and other factors), different flavor profiles will reveal themselves. This fine Ethiopian coffee is cultivated at a very high altitude of 1,600-2,300 meters, with an abundance of sunshine, and no frost in the morning. This climate helps produce incredibly flavorful coffee beans with a hint of spice, and fruity, floral notes.
The Halo Bariti Cooperative was founded in 2012, formerly part of the WORKA Co-op and is an active member of the YCFCU. The coffee farms are tended to by over 250 families in this remote region of Ethiopia. When you buy our coffee, you know you're supporting hard-working coffee farmers all over the planet.
