New export rules in Ethiopia have recently opened the door for Ethiopian coffee suppliers to offer direct lots from their washing stations. Mijane Woresa, who has worked in coffee for more than 30 years, owns and operates the Hartume Washing Station and his Halo Hartume is sourced from 400 farmers who cultivate coffee on small plots and deliver their cherry directly to the washing station. As a family-owned business, Mijane and his sons work diligently on social impact projects that will improve the communities where they source coffee. They have invested in more localized cherry collection sites to reduce transportation costs for small farmers and have contributed to road construction projects that make travel in the area safer. They have also invested in school infrastructure projects and equipment for children to play sports. They continue to show a commitment to quality coffee and their community. This lot is pretty special with aroma and tasting notes of lavender, pear, and key lime pie.
