Halo Hartume is located in the central-western side Gedeb, and right in the heart of some of the highest elevations for coffees. Haile Figa owns one of the washing stations here, where 476 farmers brought their coffee cherries, and Halie and his team produced this exceptional washed lot.
Haile Figa, inspired by the new laws and regulations in Ethiopia, built his Halo Hartume wet mill in 2018 with the hope of purchasing coffee from the nearby farmers in the community.
Haile is a native of the Gedeb town and started his journey in the coffee industry 12 years ago and still describes it as a success built on a strong foundation of relationships with the community around where he is from.
The Halo Hartume washing station utilizes the traditional underwater fermentation commonly used in Ethiopia. The coffee is fermented fully submerged in water for 36 to 48 hours normally, but the process can take longer. The water used for fermentation is changed frequently to keep the process clean and avoid off-flavors. After fermentation, the coffee is dried for 10-14 days on raised beds.
