Giorgia: Hi, folks. Giorgia here from Timely with a quick update for subscribers. If you're a subscriber, thus you'll be receiving coffee from Halo Beriti this week. Now, this coffee comes from the Gedeo Zone in Ethiopia, and Halo Beriti is the name of the mill at which this coffee was processed. So this lot actually represents the coffee of about 557 smallholder producers. So what producers will do is that they'll cultivate their coffee, harvest it, and then bring it to Halo Beriti mill for it to be processed, washed, dried and so on. Most of these farmers are classified as smallholders, which means that their farms will be anywhere below 3 to 2.5 hectares and that's where they'll grow their coffee and bring it to Halo Beriti. So one of the cool things about this coffee is that this area in which it was grown is has a very fertile soil and it's very, very rich in clay, so very, very high clay content. This is very good for areas that might experience less rainfall or are more inclined to drought because clay has got a very large capacity to retain water and therefore retain nutrients. It also binds really well to minerals such as potassium and magnesium, which can be really beneficial for plant growth as well, specifically for coffee plant growth. So this coffee we assigned the colour mint to like this light green kind of colour. That means we think that the defining characteristic of this coffee is that it's delicate. So it's got a very sort of light mouthfeel. It's very easy drinking, it's got some qualities that are almost tea-like we've put Earl Grey there as one of the tasting notes. So it's the kind of coffee that's very sort of soft on the palate and easy to drink. That's all I've got for this week, folks, and I'll see you next week for next week's video. But yeah, I hope you enjoy Halo Beriti and see you next time. Yeah. How are you? I'm Timely with a quick update for saff. For saff. From Halo Beriti this week. If you. If you. Eh, it's Giorgia here from Timely with with a que. What happens? What does happen? Go away.
