Note: Pre-ground coffee beans will get stale quicker, which may cause it to lose its aromatic subtleties. Although we'd be happy to grind the coffee beans to your liking, we highly recommend our customers to grind their coffee beans just before consumption.   

 

Halo Beriti Washing Station started in 2014 and helps 750 small farmers who bring their coffee in cherry form. This coffee is part of a special process where people carefully sort it by hand during receiving and drying to make sure only the best coffee goes into the bags.

In Ethiopia, farmers usually have small plots of land and grow various crops along with coffee. Most small farmers take their cherries to a nearby washing station where the coffee is sorted, weighed, and they get paid or receive a receipt. The washing station processes the coffee, either by washing or drying naturally on raised beds.

Washing stations serve hundreds to sometimes a thousand or more farmers during the harvest season. Because the cherries are blended together, it's hard to trace exactly which farmer's coffee is in which bag on a specific day. Despite this, we try our best to get coffee from the same washing stations each year through our export partners.

In this region, farmers usually don't use fertilizers or pesticides in coffee production because they don't have access to them.
