Description: Worasa Mijane and his son Daniel Mijane are famous for the quality of their coffee throughout the Gedeb region of southern Yirgacheffe. This selection comes from their Halo Hartume washing station, and is a testament to their dedication of producing nothing but the best.
Worasa Mijane and Daniel are both natives to the wordea (district) of Gedeb. In the early 2000's Worasa Mijane started processing coffee at his first site in the community of Worka Sakaro. Nearly a decade later in 2013, Worasa and his son Daniel started their second washing station in the community of Halo Hartume just a few kilometers to the west from their Worka Sakaro site.
Daniel Mijane and his father use the traditional underwater fermentation that is popular in Ethiopia. Normal fermentation time ranges from 24-48 hours. After fermentation the coffee is dried on raised beds for 10-14 days.
Halo Hartume is a popular washing station for commercial roasters for a reason. It’s actually the coffee we’re using in our own roastery for Abeba at the moment, and we love it. We get a bit of Tropical fruitiness, acidity of Lemon, a Floral quality, and the sweetness of Honey.
