This mill was established six years ago and Haru is the name of the small village where the washing station is located. The Haru area is famous for producing quality, and is located in the heart of Yirgacheffe. This region is one of Ethiopia’s most densely populated, with the highest number of coffee producers, and for good reason: the coffees are great. Yirgacheffe has been recognised for many years for producing some of the world’s finest coffees.
