In the heart of Yirgacheffe you’ll find Halo Beriti, a new washing station managed by Abeyot Ageze. Abeyot is a born and bred coffee grower - generations of his family have made their living as farmers. Like most of the smallholders in his area, Abeyot grows his crops - including enset (Ethiopian banana), potato, cereal grains, and of course coffee - right in his own yard.
At the Halo Beriti washing station, Abeyot serves as operational manager. The station collects cherries from 520 neighboring smallholders, whose average plots are no larger than a hectare. Abeyot uses water from the Worka river to wash the coffee. Fermentation times vary between 45 and 65 hours, depending on the weather. The parchment dries for 7 to 10 days.
