Ethiopia Kochere Hartume Natural
Producer: Mystic Cup Stories
Altitude: 1950-2050 Masl
Tasting Notes: Plum, Apricot, Bergamat, Mandarin Black Tea Finish
We love the New crop from Mystic cup stories in Ethiopia so much that we decided to offer this natural process lot from Halo Hartume to compliment the washed version we’ve all adored.
The Halo Hartume natural is bursting with bright and juicy raspberry notes. This coffee offers the fruit forward flavor profile you’d expect from a naturally processed Ethiopian coffee but with a more delicate mandarin -like sweetness. Careful attention is paid to processing at the Halo Hartume mill to dry this natural processed coffee evenly, this ensures a clean consistent cup upon brew.
More about Halo Hartume
Private processors like Halo Hartume are a thing to behold. It’s a tough business being a private processor in Gedeb, as the sheer density of competition among washing stations tends to push cherry prices as high as double throughout a single harvest, and privates often don’t have the backing of a larger union to secure financing, regulate cherry prices, or bring export costs down with centralized milling and marketing. Successful private washing stations like the Mystic cup stories then, need to be not only standout quality processors to stay afloat; they must also be excellent business developers with connections and community standing, in order to continue winning the business of farmers and buyers alike, and stay afloat for the long term.
