Grown and harvested by the Halo Bariti Coop in the Yirgacheffe of region of Ethiopia, at an altitude of about 6,700 ft. Halo Bariti is one of the newest cooperatives in Ethiopia, having been in existence only since 2012. The members all used to be a part of the larger Worka Cooperative, located on the opposite catchment area. This zone is extraordinarily remote and undeveloped, meaning most farmers have more land under their control than farther north in Sidama, Yirgacheffe, or Kochere. The Worka zone in general is the highest altitude cultivation area in the entire country of Ethiopia, resulting in some stunningly unique cup profiles.
