This lot gets its name from the village, Haro, in the Gedeb Woreda district of Southern Ethiopia, where the wet mill is situated. Gedeb is part of the larger Gedeo zone, and coffees from this area are collectively referred to as Yirgacheffe. Established in 2020, the Halo Hartume wet mill is surrounded by various smallholder growers whose farms, typically 1-2ha, are situated at 1900-2200masl. The soil here is a fertile, red-brown soil common to the Ethiopian highlands. This lot is made up of cherries from 564 growers – the chief variety grown is Dega, and the harvest period is November-January. Halo Hartume is located 10 miles from Chelbesa, where SNAP (the export company owned by Neguesse Debela) operates another wet mill. Coffees from Haro are known for their uniform bean size.
