Harazi coffee is grown in the heights of the mountainous Haraaz region which enjoys moderate temperature and low humidity. Such climate is one of the most important factors for its quality as well as the quality of the water used to irrigate the coffee trees. It depends on rainwater, dams and springs from the peaks of the mountainous highlands which are with a balanced mineral texture and fresh taste, giving the fruits of the coffee a unique sweet taste.
The fruits of the coffee are harvested in stages. No fruits are harvested until they mature and turn into a dark red color saturated by the rich fruity flavours that has been left in soil by older plantations throughout the years.
Traditional drying is practiced under the sunlight without washing, being as a distinctive feature of the Harazi coffee and when is the time that the coffee peels that gives an additional value of the sharp flavour of the fruit.
