Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Halo Bariti Washed

Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Halo Bariti Washed

Halo Bariti is marketed and officially labeled as a Yirgacheffe, but in truth, it is grown too far south to be Yirgacheffe and doesn't share many attributes with a Yirgacheffe. This is a fairly new fair trade organic co-op from a previously undeveloped region south of Yirgacheffe. The co-op's name is Halo Bariti, and has only been in existence since 2012. The members of the co-op own their own land and can boast that they have the highest altitude to work with in the entire country of Ethiopia (4800 to 6800 feet above sea level). It's an area where wild, heirloom coffee grows naturally, and even though this co-op is cultivating the coffee plants for commercial sale, they still grow heirloom varietals native to their land, some of which aren't grown anywhere else in the world.

This is a washed process coffee and so you can roast it a couple degrees darker than a sundried natural. It's extremely chocolatey and sweet, not much fruit, silky body, no earthiness or bad tastes.  It's aromatic and enjoyable.
