Illustrator Series

We teamed up with McGowans Print and graduating students from the Belfast School of Art Graphic Design & Illustration class of 2022, to launch three new coffees each with its own unique illustration. It’s always been a privilege to be on the doorstep of the amazing creativity that comes out of the Belfast School of Art, so it’s an honour to have a small way to shine a light on some of that. Congratulations to all of this year’s graduating students!

The label for Halo Beriti is illustrated by Kerrie McNeill. Kerrie’s illustrations gives life and vibrancy to the colours and flavours of this coffee. Her playful style is something that she hopes sparks positivity and joy in the everyday life for others too.

Alongside her client work, Kerrie runs her own online shop with colourful and fun greetings cards, stationery, plant pots and more. Keep up with her work on instagram: @_kerrieillustrates_.

Halo Beriti Washing Station was established in 2014 and serves 750 smallholder producers, who deliver their coffee in cherry form. This particular lot is part of a "special preparation" in which hand-sorting was done repeatedly throughout the receiving and drying process, ensuring that only perfect coffees made it into the bags.

Coffees in Ethiopia are typically traceable to the washing station level, where smallholder farmers—many of whom own less than 1/2 hectare of land, and as little as 1/8 hectare on average—deliver cherry by weight to receive payment at a market rate. The coffee is sorted and processed into lots without retaining information about whose coffee harvest is in which bag or which lot.
