LIGHTER ROAST | Tropical Fruits I Dried Blueberry I Chocolate Fudge
We’ve sourced our rarest Ethiopian lot ever! Our roast rated 95 points by Coffee Review (October 2022). This one is a complex fruit-driven cup with notes of tropical fruits, dried blueberry, & chocolate fudge! It’s the first anaerobic natural process coffee we’ve ever offered. We were blown away when it reached our cupping table. This is one you home connoisseurs want to experience for sure.
This extremely small lot comes to us from the renowned Gera Estate & was processed using the relatively new anaerobic natural process where coffee is fermented without oxygen. This distinct fermentation method results in complex, exotic flavors because of the different acids it creates. During this process, anaerobics are placed in sealed tanks that are pressurized from CO2 buildup. This additional pressure forces more juices and sugars into the coffee. The remaining pressure and oxygen are let out using releasing valves. As you can imagine, there is a considerable amount of meticulous attention to detail to produce this special coffee.
The Gera Estate is at altitudes over 2,000 meters above sea level. This altitude combined with the nitrogen-rich plants & natural fertilizers provide excellent growing conditions. No chemical fertilizers or insecticides are used & production at Gera focuses on sustainability and great working conditions for its employees. The estate provides housing, childcare and education, clean drinking water, electricity, healthcare, & recreational facilities for all of its employees free of charge.
