Adisu Kidane has been growing coffee for years, first working alongside his father on the family farm, then in 2002 turning his inherited land into a specialty farm. His membership at the Halo Bariti Cooperative, under the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union, has resulted in selection as an example farm since 2014.
Adisu takes his harvested cherries to the Halo Bariti cooperative where he is a member. There, ripe cherries for this natural processed coffee are carefully hand sorted and floated to remove less dense coffee beans. Next the cherries are dried on raised beds for 15 to 20 days and turned regularly to avoid over-fermentation and mold. Raised beds are carefully constructed to ensure proper air circulation and temperature control, for optimal drying.
Cherries were covered during the afternoons to prevent harsh drying in the intense sun. Once the cherries finish drying to 11 percent moisture, they are transported to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, to be milled and prepared for export through the YCFCU.
